This magnificent 1964 production with the iconic Robert Hoffman in the lead remains for me the best programme ever to feature on children's TV. Everything about it is perfection, in particular the hauntingly beautiful music, which in my opinion remains the best score of any TV programme to this day.
I first saw this programme as a 9 year old in 1964 and have since watched it over and again, most recently at age 63, yet it has lost none of it's magic.
It has everything this classic tale could ever need and the fact that it is in black and white merely enhances its allure to the viewer.
