It was in June 1972 when this movie was shown on German TV entitled as: Schneegans! I just found out who was the writer of the movie minutes ago after 30 years! I had absolutely no idea who made the movie and in which country it was produced. My god the picture had such a great impact on my little soul, I was just 4 years old, and was watching it with my mother, that until now this movie is the most important in my life! Not only did my mother mention it in her diary, as we both were crying and I just could not recover after the movie, so exciting was this picture, but now I found out, that Rhayader was played by Richard Harris, one of my most favourite actors! This Picture is so full of true love, mystery and devotion, it makes a human being very sensitive for the relationship of humans and animals, that I recommend this picture to all teachers as a lesson on this terms.If a BBC Official is reading this, please reconsider the Will of Gallico and try to obtain the rights for a reissue on DVD (with the Screenplay as a Bonus!) As this movie was not repeated in our Country either (to my knowledge!) since it first aired and after reading all this similar entries I m sure he would reconsider it himself.
