More time travelling for Patrick

I seen A Hitch In Time many years ago when I was younger when BBC1 screened it one afternoon during the children's programmes after school.

It is about a professor with a time machine known as OSKA and is discovered by two children in a cave. The Professor, Wagstaff then sends the children through time and encounter several villains.

Professor Wagstaff is played by Dr Who actor Patrick Troughton and is joined by Sorcha Cusack and Ronnie Brody.

A Hitch In Time is one of the Children's Film Foundation movies and would be good to see it again, along with others from this company. Problem is that they never seem to be on the telly now.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
