Time Busters is a British children's television series created by Tim Child and the same producers of Knightmare. It was first shown on the BBC from 17 January 1993 to 22 January 1995.


Each run of the game involves a team of children taking a 'time-travelling' bus that drove you to a historical reenactment. The children would be involved in a quest to find a Time-Capsule. This challenge would be a race against the clock to succeed and each episode would result in the team being successful, or having to abandon their attempt due to running out of time. Regardless the episode would conclude in the children quickly returning to the bus before it disappeared from that era.


There is very little material available on this show. There are a few short clips and a more detailed summary of the show on Knightmare fan-sites and other gameshow sites.
