The Quatermass Experiment is a project of Transilvania Productions to recreate the vision of the classic screenplay by the late Nigel Kneale.

The screenplay, first broadcast by BBC Television in July and August 1953, tells the story of a disastrous space flight by three European astronauts. Two of the crew inexplicably disappear in the course of the flight. The third returns in a state of catatonia ... and begins to mutate into an unearthly organism which threatens all life on the planet. Professor Bernard Quatermass is the only person who can prevent catastrophe ...

Of the original six-part series, the first two episodes have been preserved and the last four have been lost.
