Time Travel

Who hasn't wanted to whizz back in time and check out the dinosaurs, or find out just how they built the pyramids? Or perhaps fast forward and see what your grandchildren look like? The concept of time travel has been around long before there was any hope of achieving it, though scientists now feel it is, in theory at least, a possiblility! Meanwhile the closest we can come to travelling through time is via the magic of movies... Please note: the most famous time traveller of them all, Doctor Who and his trusty police box, make only a token appearance on this list as to include all those titles would quickly transform the collection into a 'Doctor Who Category'. Pictured: Marty and the Doc test-drive the DeLorean.
