My-MP3 [Time Tunnel]

Artist: John (Johnnie)Williams
Album: Televisions Greatest hits Vol: 2
Song: The Time Tunnel
Released: 1966

One of the perks of having an AppleTV unit is being able to browse the old television shows that are available for download from iTunes. I ran across this little gem and downloaded the first episode to see if it was still as cool as I remembered back in 1966.

In essence, it is. While the show and the acting are way out dated, this was a real stretch for television. A massive government funded experiment for time travel that goes arye, episode after episode. I am sure many of the sets were recycled for "Vogage to the Bottom of the Sea" and other Irwin Allen classics.

The theme song is actually pretty far ahead of it's time, composed by what must have been a very young John Williams, before his "Jaws" and "Star Wars" fame.
