Great Mysteries
6 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a child in the early 1970s I used to love to watch this series late on a Saturday night. Orson Wells eerie presentation added to the shows mystic, the haunting theme tune by John Barry left an indelible impression. loved the episode with Peter Cushing. Why has there never been any repeats since the 70s. Night Gallery and Thriller two other excellent series from that era are available on DVD hopefully this will be be too. Hopefully other excellent shows from the 1970s will also be available on DVD such as, Shadows (1975), Toms Midnight Garden (1974), Ace of Wands (1972). The 1970s were a golden era in children's TV. It would be a lovely trip down memory lane to see these shows again.
