Having spent a great deal of time in the woods with my parents camping this performance was one of the most unforgettable shows I have ever watched. I can still see the man standing in the campfire trying to explain to his friends he is OK and nothing is wrong, when the wendigo flies over and calls him; "Oh my burning feet of fire". I would love to see it as an adult although I know it was performed live with little chance of any recording. I was 10 at the time it aired. The actors were unknown and to my best recollection I have not seen them in other works. This was one show in a series of great ghost tales we watched regularly. I can recall one other show as vividly Room 13 which explained why hotels/motels do not have a room thirteen and a numbered thirteenth floor.
