I fondly remember this series from the 1970's, absolutely loved it along with many other drama series devised for children during that time. I remember it really clearly, and the message it got across to viewers as to how awful bullying was and being different to other children (in Kizzy's case, that of a gypsy). I can still remember the scenes vividly and how horrible the children were to this poor girl. Really perplexed as to why this series has never been repeated (not to my knowledge anyway), because if it was shown today it would still be relevant and not outdated at all. There were many quality children TV programmes made during this time, but just seem to have been forgotten. Such is their impact, I can still fondly remember them and wish that my children could view them too. I can remember other great programmes (The Changes, Catweazle, Lizzie Dripping, Phoenix & The Carpet) that have been forgotten by the TV archives. Any chance that any of these wonderful programmes could be repeated again in the future?
