A production sign from the classic BBC sci-fi drama based on John Christopher’s book series, The Tripods (1984 – 1985).
The Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Masters, who patrol the land in giant Tripods. When humans reach the age of 16 they are ‘capped’, placing their minds under the control of the aliens. A group of young friends avoid being capped themselves, and go in search of a group of ‘free men’.
Signs like this were used on the set to guide crew and visitors around. It is made of card and features 'Tripods' in its classic 'futura black' font. There is some wear from production use and age, including scuffing, scratches and staining. Overall it remains in a good condition.
