Tyrant King with Pink Floyd et al soundtrack

The Tyrant King has now been released on DVD. The show, a rare, and little known nationally syndicated children's drama aired on British TV for just six episodes, featured many contemporary artists including The Nice, Cream, Moody Blues, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Pink Floyd, on the soundtrack.

The Tyrant King was a mystery thriller, and follows three teenagers as they traverse London searching for an answer to a hidden secret. A quest fraught with drama and danger takes them to some of the capital's most iconic landmarks and beyond (a reflection of the drama's origin as an adventure story published by London Transport). The show looks pretty dated now, and is a fairly quaint look at the "swinging sixties" albeit with a youth slant to the show.

The first episode aired on October 3rd, 1968, and was only ever seen in black and white. The new DVD, released for a limited period, has the show in full colour, and orders can now be placed for this (which is in PAL format), through Amazon UK. Here's the trailer for the series release:
