if anyone has any region dvd (hell, i'll take vhs), WRITE!!!

this aired on nickelodeon in the states back, hell, musta been 1983-85ish, as part of an anthology show called the third eye...others were "children of the stones" (now on region 2 pal dvd) and the haunting of cassie somebody...i was just a child when these shows were on, only 7 or nine, but i remember them capturing my imagination, and being able to follow the plots, for all of their convolutedness, because these shows didn't play down to kids, they embraced the imaginative nature of childhood and set us free to figure out what was going on...as i say, anyone has this anywhere, PLEEEEESE let me know, i'd simply revel in seeing this again...original tomorrow people too, if you please...and thank you.... hehehe...my stepbrother and i used to play under the mountain in the field behind my house...rainy days was for bad guy (muddy) parts, and clear was for the twins...no, neither of us played the girl...i was usually mr. jones....
