'Hamelen' is almost beyond legendary for our generation growing up in the 70's in Holland. The fact that most of it will never be seen again due to the standard procedure of re-using tapes brings tears to ones eyes. On the other hand : I tried to interest my offspring to the 6 episodes that have survived (and put on DVD), and they shook their heads in dismay. Well, some things do not age - like the shorts by Laurel & Hardy / Citizen Kane by O. Welles - but ultra-low budget dutch TV Series from the past do.. Ultimately, this is a lesson; you cannot go 'back'. It's slow, effects are laughable, acting for the most part is mediocre. Some of the songs still work, though not for the obnoxious children involved. A true legend should not be judged by modern standards I guess
