"...and above all remain totally detached" - Dr. Hoskins
Garishly cheap 70's oddity based on Issac Asimov, that pre-dated the hit 80's movie 'Iceman' by years. A scientist played by the great Barry Morse (who looks startlingly like Dr Who's Master) uses state of the art time travel technology to bring a Neanderthal child back to present time. A nurse grows attached to the ugly little fella naming him Timmy and teaches basic words. I'd have loved to see further adventures of doc Hoskins, features the best use of a dwarf/midget on TV till 'Game of Thrones'.
