A country girl takes a job as nursemaid to a wealthy family, and finds that everyone in the house seems to be suffering under the rule of a strict, authoritarian nanny. She has a few country tricks ...
Reading the other reviews, there seem to be a few others from Australia who remember watching "Shadows" in the 1970s. There also seems to be the same estimation of the series that it was very well executed horror that has left a lasting impression, despite difficulty in remembering some of the detail. I recall being equally terrified and enthralled as a child and its memory still haunts. This makes me wonder whether it was really suitable for children (4pm on a weekday) when even as adults recalling it is enough to leave one unsettled. I have the same reaction to "Children of the Stones". I don't know how the British were able to make such disturbingly brilliant series in the 1970s but they were masters of the horror genre. "Thriller" is another obvious example. Anyway, it is with this caveat that I mention for fans waiting for many years that the first season of "Shadows" became available at Amazon UK in late 2010. "Shadows" is a lesser known series, quite underrated. Until a few years ago it was difficult to find anything about it on the internet, including on IMDb. As far as I recall, there was no entry on IMDb until about 2004, such was the show's relative obscurity.
