Présentation de l'éditeur

When the TARDIS breaks down on the Roof of the World, Central Asia, in 1289, its occupants are met by the explorer Marco Polo. His mammoth undertaking is to cross the desert to Peking, and before long he has set his mind on presenting the TARDIS to the explorer Kublai Khan as a gift on his arrival. Unless they can persuade Polo otherwise, the Doctor and his companions will lose their only means to escape this moment in history. However, Polo isn't the only one with designs on the TARDIS. The warlord Tegana will go to any lengths to steal the magical blue box - lengths which endanger the lives of the whole travelling party as they are beset by droughts, bandits and the merciless desert. And when the Doctor finally meets Kublai Khan himself, the precious Ship is his only collateral in a high-stakes game of backgammon - and the Khan is a master of the game... William Russell, who plays Ian in the story, narrates the soundtrack to this classic adventure which, long missing from the television archives, has itself gained legendary status as an example of Doctor Who at its finest. Hailing from the programme's first season (1963-4), it also stars Jacqueline Hill, Carole Ann Ford and Mark Eden as Marco Polo.

Biographie de l'auteur

THE PROGRAMME: When Doctor Who was born to BBC1 in 1963, its purpose in life was largely educational. The device of time travel would enable the Doctor and his companions to visit periods in history which any child might learn about in the course of his or her education. For the sake of variety, and because the programme's creators were well aware of children's fascination with space travel and science fiction, each historical adventure would alternate with one set in an alien or futuristic landscape. Commissioned under the working title A Journey to Cathay, Marco Polo was the fourth Doctor Who serial to be made and shown - although, at this point in the show's development, one serial flowed into another without overarching story names (the episodes were titled individually). So far the TARDIS, carrying the mysterious Doctor, his granddaughter Susan, and her two schoolteachers who had been practically kidnapped from Earth by the old man, had moved from 1963 London to prehistoric times, then to the planet Skaro, then Outer Space, and now to 1289 Cathay. Pre-filming, for modelwork and special effects scenes as well as the final episode's fight sequence between Polo and Tegana, took place at Ealing Film Studios in January 1964. Also filmed at this time were caption shots of a parchment map detailing the caravan's route, these would accompany Polo's journal narrative in each episode. Studio recording then proceeded from January to March, with one episode per week being recorded at the BBC's Lime Grove studios in west London. The transmission of Marco Polo occasioned the first Radio Times issue to devote its cover to Doctor Who, the number dated 20 February 1964 featuring Polo, Tegana and the Doctor on the front. The incidental music for the serial was composed by Tristram Cary for an ensemble of flute/alto flute, harp and timps/percussion. Certain elements were then combined and electronically treated to createe such atmospheric cues as those accompanying the scenes in the Cave of Five Hundred Eyes. Marco Polo has the unhappy distinction of being the earliest batch of Doctor Who episodes absent from the BBC television archives. The off-air soundtrack recording, and a wealth of photographic material from the studio recordings, are the only remnants of this classic serial known to exist.
