What is the title for this TV series that I only very vaguely remember from my pre-school years:

  • It was on in the UK, probably 1975 or 1976.

  • It was a live action show, and was probably a series rather than a single show or film.

  • It was similar in tone to The Tomorrow People, but it wasn't that.

  • The characters were all children, and they all wore the same uniform, possibly yellow. This is why I recall it as sci-fi. Actually there was one episode where an adult appears but he was subdued by the children and kept prisoner.

  • My recollection is that the filming location was in some kind of quarry.

I apologise for the lack of details but it was a long time ago and I was really young. Does anyone know what this is?

    1970s shows were always filmed in a quarry. – Valorum Jul 29 '18 at 17:03
  • @Valorum Exactly! I'll be amazed if anyone can solve this - it's been bugging me for literally three decades – D.H. Jul 29 '18 at 17:06

  • I shall be interested to see if you get any reply, because I was 12 at the time and watching any UK children’s SF that I could find, and yet it rings no bells with me. – Mike Scott Jul 29 '18 at 18:37
