Synopsis by Jon Mills
Adam Adamant Lives was first screened on BBC1 on June 23, 1966, and ran for two seasons. Over the 29 episodes this quirky fantasy -- the BBC's answer to The Avengers, conceived by Sydney Newman, the creator of Doctor Who -- became a household name, and family favorite. Adam Adamant, a much-celebrated hero of the Edwardian era (played by RADA-trained actor Gerald Harper), had been frozen in time in 1902 by his archenemy, The Face, only to be discovered by accident, unearthed from a building site in 1966. After initial confusion the out-of-time gentlemen soon finds trusty companions: Swinging '60s Londoner Georgina Jones (Juliet Harmer), and the eccentric entertainer William Simms (Jack May), both of whom help him solve a series of mysterious crimes in '60s London.
