The Time Tunnel
Set in 1968 (interestingly, two years before it aired), The Time Tunnel centers around the two creators of a massive U.S. government project to travel through time. Forced to test the device before it’s ready, they become “lost in time” and can’t be brought back – the device keeps sending them to different times in an uncontrolled manner (and lucky for us viewers, usually to historic events). It ran for one year on ABC, from 1966 to 1967. (Trivia: the realistic-looking computers in the Time Tunnel control room were real decommissioned computers of the day that the producers bought from the U.S. Air Force.) We have the entire 30-episode run of the series below.
