I have always loved this show, and I think has has been said many times before, anyone who was a 60's child in Britain couldn't have missed this, and whenever the theme came up, it sent tingles up the spine.
A simple film on a low budget, but with outstanding talents all round, it is well worth finding. The acting and direction really stand out, and the cinematography in black and white only helps to give it that quality edge. It is now confirmed that Network DVD is releasing it on DVD on June 18th 2007 after a very long wait. It is also worth noting that the haunting score is also now available in an expanded CD from Silva Screen. The original soundtrack was in mono, but it seems there was such a demand for this piece, that the composers recently recreated a medley with a full orchestra in stereo, and all those memories come flying back to the long hot summers as a kid.
Watch it, and I guarantee there won't be a dry eye in the house.
