TODAY is the day Emmett Lathrop "Doc" Brown, Ph.D. will arrive in the present from his "own time" of 1985.

It was fictionalised in the now-classic 1980s film Back to the Future.

To honour the day, Christopher Lloyd has delivered a message to us living in the present.

"Great Scott, if my calculations are correct it is now precisely October 21, 2015.

"The future has finally arrived.

"Yes, it is different than we all thought.

"But don't worry, it just means your future hasn't been written yet. Noone's has.

"Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one."

For fans, this is the day that has been 30 years in the making.

Welcome to the future!
