It stayed in my memory, 20 July 2003

I remember watching this British series for children, "The Feathered Serpent" when I was about 9 years old or so. I was very fascinated by it because I had just read in a children's book about world history about the Aztecs, and they captured my imagination, especially their worship of gods. I remember, from the series, the prince and the other boy, and how they had to find their way through a maze inside a temple. I also remember the young queen being trapped inside a room that was filled with screams, and the boys came to her rescue. Yes, I remember quite a bit, now I come to think of it. I also remember the scene towards the end when the evil priest becomes insane and declares that he is the dark god. I remember there were a great many childrens' historical TV series on at that time, but that was the only one that really captured my imagination... There is not much information about it on the Web.

Peace! Robert
