how can I get to see this again?
3 September 2004 | by (Swansea, Wales) – See all my reviews

Great story from my childhood and I would love to see it again along with a load of other fondly remembered TV programmes. Very disappointed and nonplussed as to why it (and other programmes) are not available to buy. Anyone know of a way of getting hold of a copy of Kizzy? Also The Phoenix and the Carpet, The Peppermint Pig, The Changes, Touch and Go, The Singing Ringing Tree.....I could go on and on.....

Kizzy itself was one of those programmes that everyone seemed to watch and most still remember. It was a strong story about alienation, prejudice and bullying that is surely as topical now as it was then. I remember it being well-made and acted, it certainly made a great impression on me, but of course without access to a copy of it that evaluation must go unchecked. If it is the case that none or few of these programmes are available to buy, then I'm amazed that the BBC or, ITV for the occasional classic it managed to muster, have failed to see the financial potential of releasing them for nostalgia junkies like me to buy.
