 The Flipside of Dominick Hide was a wonderful BBC Play for Today from the early 1980s, and possibly the best SF ever done by the BBC. Although it now appears to have sunk from sight it was so well received at the time that the BBC commissioned a sequel (unique for Play for Today?) called Another Flip for Dominick. The plot is a fairly standard time-traveller-goes-back-in-time-and-gets-tangled-up-in-his-own-timeline but it is so well done as to be an almost perfect piece of SF. Dominick was played by Peter Firth, but it wasn't really a big name production. One key ingredient in the whole thing was also the theme song - "Are There Somewhere Island"​ by US band Meal Ticket, which just fits the tone of the whole thing perfectly. The Flipside of Dominick Hide was a wonderful BBC Play for Today from the early 1980s, and possibly the best SF ever done by the BBC.
