Codename Icarus is a British television series produced by the BBC in 1981.

The series combined elements of teenage drama and conspiracy thriller. It involved child prodigies being manipulated as the basis for a complex scheme involving nuclear missiles and the mysterious Icarus Foundation's plot to take over the world.

It starred Barry Angel as child prodigy Martin Smith and Philip Locke as John Doll. The BBC and Knight books released a novelization of the series by Richard Cooper in 1981.

The serial has been released on DVD in the United States.

The location for the scenes when the children were at school was the Redrice School, just outside Andover, Hampshire, UK. This school has since been renamed as the Farleigh School. All the child extras came from the Harrow Way Community School in Andover.
