It's a great memory from my youth - where can I get it?
2 February 2003 | by (Malmö, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I first saw this tv-series when I was 6 years old and it still fresh in my memmory. The music and story was fantastic as I remembred it. Now when I'm little older it would be nice to see if my memory is corrct. I'w been asking the Swedish televishion to rerun it but without success, sofar.

Right now I'm just hoping for a DVD release.
