I saw this BBC series in the 70's and recently bought the video package of the complete episodes. Pollyanna is like a breath of fresh air on a dark, dull and listless day, and she perks you up with her incessant chatter and "I AM glad...." lines. Her youthful exuberance slowly turns the dour grown-ups (like Aunt Polly and Mr Pendleton) into more lively and spontaneous adults. One of the best BBC productions, which I will cherish for years to come.
