"The Flipside Of Dominick Hide / Another Flip For Dominick [1980/82]
Asimov
Hi all,

There was a program I remember when I was still at school and it was part of a series of plays called "The Flipside Of Dominick Hide / Another Flip For Dominick [1980/82] .

Now I have been looking for it for a long time, and on Friday I suddenly found it on Amazon, and it arrived today.

I wonder if it will be as good as I remember?

Does anyone else remember this programme?

My goodness me, yes I do recall it. It was one of the first shows we tried recording using our brand new Video recorder (the one with a long wire connecting the remote control to the machine!) And then, disaster, the machine didn't record one time. Something called the RF whatnot had failed. For the life of me though, I cannot recall the actual story line.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.

Hi LittleSue,

Well it is about time travel. Apparently in the future they have the ability to look back in history and catalogue what is going on. I do remember more than this, but I don't want to say too much unless you want to watch it yourself.

The series of plays were called "play for today", and this episode was so popular they made a sequel 2 years later.

A very young Peter Firth plays the time traveller, when he still had a good head of hair too.

Anyway I am watching the first episode tonight, so I hope it is as good as I remember.

It was on BBC 4 a few years ago and I really enjoyed it. I am tempted to get the DVD now I know it is available!!Grin

That's right, he did have a mass of hair. It must have been the second one that we tried to record. And yes, Time travel was the theme.
It's strange how it all comes flooding back...eventuallySmile

Hi all,

Well I just watched it again, and you know what it is strange. It was made in 1980 and I expected it to be really dated, but it didn't feel dated at all. About haflway through I spotted Phil Davis with blonde hair. Luckily the programme didn't rely on sci fi special effects, but in parts it is solid drama, and good acting, and in other parts there are comedic moments. Peter Firth is brillient as the wide eyed traveller from the future, and it is hard to believe it was the same actor who was in Spooks.

I won't tell you much more, because that would spoil it for people who haven't seen it, but I will say it was worth the 6 I paid on Amazon.

I loved those when they were on originally! Maybe I'll invest in copy too.

Hi all,

I just watched the second part of Dominic Hide, and this was made 2 years after the original. I will say the second part seemed to slightly date more than the original, and there wasn't as much humour. There was more drama than comedic moments, and I will say that the ending wasn't what I was expecting, which is a good thing.

It is surprising how much Peter Firth's hair had changed in two years, definately much shorter.

Over all I would say the first story is the best and the second is also enjoyable, but in a different way. I would reccomend anyone to pop on Amazon and buy this one, as it is quite cheap at the moment(Thanks to all the tax dodging, er I think LOL ).

I would really love it if Peter Firth made a third story now, but it will never happen. He is still a very good actor as we have seen in Spooks and now Undeniable.

And of course he was very good in 'The Double Deckers' !!

Love both those, Equus a modern classic, Lifeforce unintentionally hilarious, " gather the pieces of that guy together - and watch them!" watching patrick stewart go to pieces (literally) is a bit ott tho...

I saw a bootleg of the first Dominick Hide play in 1999, when I was in my early 20s. Fell hopelessly in love with Caroline Langrishe.... *pine*
