I saw this recently (2007) again which made it around a 20 year gap between its original airing. Thing is, I still loved it. Such a simple story well presented story. Basically its about the strange mystical bonding between a set of brother and sister twins. (Gemini twins) Each episode was nicely paced and the whole six episode story gradually built to a wonderful climax. In short the twins, separated at birth, gradually become aware of each other, not by sight but by a series of strange and often telepathic events. There's a wonderful mysterious undercurrent and although the story lacks any real protagonist, suspense is maintained by the constant uncertainty as to whether the twins will reunite. This has to be my all time favourite children's serial in all genres but primarily it is a sci-fi mystery. Grab your young teen children and force them to watch it, although I would imagine its almost impossible to find.
I remember vividly how I was transfixed and glued to the TV screen when
I was watching this years ago as a child. It has been completely
impossible to find and watch it again since 1987. But YouTube Gods have
smiled on viewers like me and now it is available once again. A quick
search with the title will bring all six episodes.
Friendship, trust, love, family ties, school, rebellion, psychotherapy, astrology, and so much more about England in the 80s can be found in this irresistible mix of a story about two kids, their mysterious connection and the purpose of their rings.
It looks like it was mainly shot in Twickenham, and the famous clock tower is actually the Broadway Tower in Worcestershire. A bit more information for those who might want to re-visit those locations in real life.
