At the Earth's Core

Synopsis: A Victorian scientist and his young American backer set off in their new earth-boring machine with a short test on a Welsh mountain. Unfortunately the thing is rather more powerful than expected and they end up in an enormous cavern at the centre of the earth. Here they find a race of humans enslaved to evil oversized prehistoric birds with extra-sensory abilities. The travellers decide they can be some help, the more so as at least one of the slaves is very eye-catching.

take over, David?

I must...

- Don't give up, sir

- I can't, I...

- Ah, oh, ah...

- Doc! Doc Perry!

- Ohh!

- Don't...



- Oh, Doc!

- Huh?

- Doc!

- Oh!

- You all right?

- Where wh-where was I?

It's c-c-c-old.

- The temperature...

- Hmmm?

Look at it.

I can't see a thing.



Ice. It can't be possible.

Fascinating. Just

make a note of the...


Just make a note of

the temperature, will you?

She's going up!

A little more throttle, David.

Temperature's rising, doc.

We're on our way home.

Not quite.

We appear to be, uh,

in the middle

of a... an underground

lake at the moment.




Lifting nicely.

Knew she'd do it.

Lifting nicely?

Hold on, doc!

Hold on.


Total power failure?

Oh, how very disappointing.

It must've been the water.

I didn't allow

for that contingency.

Well, doc, shall we

see where we are?


I'll, uh, just

get my umbrella.

The weather seems so changeable.


Ah, where did I put it

amongst all this lot?

Ah! There it is.



Yes... yes. What?

Come here, quick.

Hey really, I really must check

the reason for that power failure.

I don't like being...

what an unbelievable sight.


Steady, doc.


This can't be the other

side of the hill, surely.

Unless it's

changed dramatically.

Well, where are we?

Look at this Mesozoic moss.

Or is it a cycad?

Yeah, I'm not sure, I...

I've only seen it

before in fossilized form.

I would dearly love to take

a frond back with me.

That will be great, doc.

Just great.

But where on earth can we be?


Oh, I say.

Steady, they may be stingers.

Onward, dear boy.

What an extraordinary sky.

What a strange color, doc.

This cannot be the Rhondda valley.

I've never seen anything like it.
