This a real classic. It took me until recently to track down its title.

This description may jog some memories...

Arguably the most ambitiously sophisticated science fiction series in terms of writing and performances ever produced for a children’s audience, the story centred around two children, Simon Randall and Liz Skinner, who, whilst on holiday in St. Oswald, investigate the disappearance of a young girl at the ruins of a nearby naval base. Also interested in the disappearance is a man called Traynor.

Drawn to the outer barrier of the base by a screeching noise, the children find a gap between two concrete posts and on passing through it they discover that they have been transported back to 1940. Here they meet Liz’s father as a young naval rating who in turn introduces them to his CO -Traynor. In this adventure Simon and Liz help Skinner to dismantle a secret laser before it falls into the hands of the Germans. On returning to the barrier they find themselves transported, not back to 1970 but to 1990 and to an Arctic research station where experiments are being carried out on human guinea pigs in order to develop a drug; HA57, that will prolong life.

After a series of adventures and near misses the children return to their own time only to be persuaded by Traynor to return to the future. This time they arrive in a tropically hot Britain after a failed experiment in climate control. In their last adventure Simon and Liz travel back to 1965 where they discover that Traynor is not all he seems to be.
