Tom Baker’s Beyond Belief!
In 1997, Reeltime Pictures launched a new series of VHS home entertainment videos with the title Beyond Belief!
The concept was to make available rare cult films which were … shall we say … a little macabre or weird - and package them with a new introduction.
Former DOCTOR WHO, TOM BAKER was enlisted to host the series and explain the background to each film in a “top and tail” piece to camera.
A studio set reminiscent of a 1950’s cinema booth was created and, after recording Tom’s presentations, the film compendium series was launched with three titles, The Mutations, The Immortalizer and Berserk.
The series was a success, with great reviews, but it proved impossible to source further titles and the idea was reluctantly shelved.
The films rights have now reverted to the owners, but here, together with the trailers and outtakes from the studio recording, are TOM’s introductions, together with an explanation by series producer Keith Barnfather.
This is an oddity, but displays TOM’s ability to communicate and entertain to great effect…
