one programme that would benefit from a video release
29 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was originally a Sunday evening children's programme. Some people found the plot hard going. However this does not distract from beautifully filmed,mystic quality of the programme. As a video release this would ideal, enabling it to be digested in your own time. Could be Gillian Hills' finest hour?
