Childhood’s End Promos. Syfy‘s Childhood’s End (2015) TV mini-series trailers entitled ‘The Golden Age’ and ‘Exclusive’ respectively star Charles Dance, Mike Vogel, Jacob Holt, Hayley Magnus, and Colm Meaney. Childhood’s End‘s plot synopsis: based on the novel by Arthur C. Clarke, “Childhood’s End follows the peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious “Overlords,” whose arrival begins decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, at the cost of human identity and culture.”
More on the book that inspired the mini-series (via Wikipedia):
Clarke’s idea for the book began with his short story “Guardian Angel” (1946), which he expanded into a novel in 1952, incorporating it as the first part of the book, “Earth and the Overlords”. Completed and published in 1953, Childhood’s End sold out its first printing, received good reviews, and became Clarke’s first successful novel. The book is often regarded by both readers and critics as Clarke’s best novel, and is described as “a classic of alien literature”. Along with The Songs of Distant Earth (1986), Clarke considered Childhood’s End one of his favourite own novels. The novel was nominated for the Retro Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2004.
Directed by Nick Hurran, Childhood’s End also stars Daisy Betts, Julian McMahon, Ashley Zukerman, Simone Oula, Rebecca Bower, and Lachlan Roland-Kenn.
