Brinkman makes a surprisingly persuasive case that the two art forms are thematically and in some cases, rhetorically similar. Both feature thugs, dangerously beautiful women, death-defying daredevils and Creflo Dollar-esque men selling salvation. As luck would have it, the garden of Green Knowe is haunted by the spirits of three Restoration-era children, Toby, Alexander and Linnet. The spirit children, dressed in Cavalier finery are keen on music and drama - both long suppressed in the Puritan era before the accession of their King, Charles II Ian Rattray , who, given his nickname 'the merry monarch', makes a decidedly disgruntled cameo appearance.
This is a faithful adaptation of the novel by Lucy M. Boston, the first of a series of six books, based on her experiences living in an ancient manor house full of history: Hemingford Grey, near Huntingdon. These days the Manor covers its running costs as a setting for horror and ghost story events.
The Children Of Green Knowe has little plot; to be frank the book is essentially a three-hander. John Stadleman's adaptation perhaps misses a chance to add any real jeopardy for Tolly, with the green man 'Green Noah' providing most of the chills. The Children Of Green Knowe was shown on Wednesday afternoons with a then popular catch-up 'narrative repeat' on Sunday mornings. Peter Howell of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop provided an accomplished and very pleasant pastoral score with some wonderful Restoration period flourishes.
Cresswell's books had been a rich source material for 70s and 80s children's television drama: Lizzie Dripping , the story of a well-meaning fantasist, who was memorably accompanied by a witch only she could see , was adapted by the BBC in with Tina Heath, later of Blue Peter fame, in the title role of Penelope. The Bagthorpe Saga , a comedy about a dysfunctional family several years before The Simpsons made such a notion an art form followed in Polly Flint, an adolescent girl finding solace and closure from a turbulent teenage life, shared much in common with Minty, the heroine of Moondial.
Minty Cane, at her own suggestion "post me off somewhere" , is taken by her mother to stay with her great Aunt Mary in Belton, in the Lincolnshire countryside. Minty's mother has a car accident on her return journey and ends up in a coma. Minty, filling her days between hospital visits, is intrigued by a sundial in the grounds of the rather imposing local mansion. Under moonlight, the magical sundial seems to latch onto Minty's highly developed mental powers and transports her back in time; she comes to know it as the "moondial". Minty encounters two rather pallid Victorian children: a cheeky but sickly servant boy, Tom "short for Edward" and the unfortunately disfigured Sarah, whose facial birthmark has drawn revulsion and suspicion from the surrounding area where she is known as "the Devil's child".
There is a creepily effective nocturnal scene wherein Sarah, Minty and Tom are taunted by masked children chanting "devil's child! Minty observes them creating a crude effigy, which they burn. Talented young actress Siri Neal is very watchable as 'Minty' - a nickname the character prefers to her rather grand Victorian sounding full name - Araminta and not as some may think because she enjoys eating Polo mints. The serial's main special effect transports the viewer through time, this is achieved via a spinning top view of the moondial, itself reminiscent of the polygon top view of the TARDIS console.
Aunt Mary takes in a lodger - a self-styled "ghost hunter", the icy Miss Raven. She is investigating paranormal activity for a book, and Minty notices her striking resemblance to Sarah's stern governess, Miss Augusta Vole.
Perhaps Miss Raven can help Minty rescue the Victorian children from their fate? The two domineering women are a very effective dual role played with just the right amount of eccentricity and restrained menace by Jacqueline Pearce, forever the crew cut 'ice queen' antagonist Servalan in Blake's 7. Pearce would work with the Director, Colin Cant once more on 's Dark Season at the suggestion of its writer - a certain "promising newcomer" called Russell T. Filmed at the atmospheric Belton House in Lincolnshire, as envisaged by Helen Cresswell in her writing, the iconic lichen-covered stone sundial supported by the figures of Eros and Kronos representing the supposed healers - love and time is actually in the grounds and not a prop.
The serial provided quite a challenge for Colin Cant. Despite being an experienced director, having worked on a variety of children's drama including the early years of Grange Hill , Cant found the book perplexing and unable to get a handle on it, took the unusual step, at the suggestion of producer Paul Stone, of meeting Cresswell to work out exactly what she intended the serial to be about.
The author was developing her book in tandem with the serial. Consequently, between them they created one of the finest and most memorable children's dramas of the decade. It shares much in common with Moondial ; like Helen Cresswell's tale, the story features an adolescent heroine. Anne is a far spikier character than Moondial 's Minty.
She is contacted by a ghost haunting the local lifeboat station. Westall's novel appears to draw inspiration from the story of Grace Darling, the legendary lass who saved several drowning sailors on the rugged Bamburgh coast in the 19th century. Like Moondial , the production was the work of the talented Paul Stone, who by had developed something of a reputation for spooky drama of quality. Like Helen Cresswell, Westall wrote the book with a particular location in mind. In scenes also redolent of Moondial , Anne must lay to rest the Watch House ghosts to achieve closure for her personal emotional upheavals.
There are many twists and scares along the way. The serial is visually very striking in spite of its relatively small budget. There is a particularly chilling moment featuring a dusty skull which may have given many youngsters nightmares at the time. The main protagonist was Chas MacGill Shaun Taylor an anti-hero, collecting would-be relics from dead Germans to impress his mates.
The series was especially memorable for a savant character called John Brownlee who could only ask "where ya goin' now? There is a graphic scene in which we get a close-up of a dead German pilot suddenly falling forward out of his cockpit - quite disturbing in the context of a 5pm kids drama. November saw the first of several adaptations of CS Lewis' Narnia books.
Made as part of a multi-million pound co-production, it reinvigorated the classic serial slot on Sunday afternoons, achieving both high praise and high ratings. It replaced the now four year old Box Of Delights as the new benchmark in effects work and was deemed the kind of showpiece drama the BBC 'should be doing'. It was a show of which the Corporation was undoubtedly very proud.
Like Box , it kick-started a new generation's love of fantasy and magical spooky dramas. They stay with the eccentric Professor Digory Kirke.

On a rainy day, Lucy - rummaging in an enormous old wardrobe - discovers herself in the Land of Narnia. She encounters a fawn called Mr Tumnus, who warns Lucy about the malevolent White Witch, who has made it "always Winter in Narnia but never Christmas". Returning back to the Professor's house a lamp post marking the portal Lucy's siblings don't believe her, questioning the Professor about her sanity.
Some time later, Edmund follows Lucy through the wardrobe, where he comes face to face with the evil White Witch. She bribes him to do her bidding with Turkish delight. When the Professor suggests Lucy may be telling the truth, a curious Peter and Susan join their younger siblings in the wardrobe and find their way into Narnia too, only to discover that Mr Tumnus has vanished, arrested and charged with treason by the Chief of Police, working for the White Witch.
Edmund's greed for Turkish delight leads him to betray his brother and sisters but they are about to set out on a journey to meet Aslan, a Lion with special powers, whom the children believe will help them defeat the White Witch. The serial had been previously attempted by ABC Television for ITV in , however, by the budget a co-production with Wonderworks and moreover the technology Paintbox finally existed to do it justice.
Adapted for Story time in , in the month before the Home Service became Radio 4, it was even revamped again for Radio 4 Schools in early Boasting a terrific cast lead by Michael Aldridge, who indulged his wonderfully bumbling eccentric persona as Digory Kirke and Barbara Kellermann, spellbinding as the icy, evil White Witch. The rich tones of Ronald Pickup gave voice to Aslan the Lion.
