A scary childhood memory.
24 December 2017 | by p-hodges536See all my reviews

As with the previous reviewer, R C Smith, I was 8 years old when I saw this series in 1962. It left an impression on me at the time as being very chilling and realistic. It's rather sad that the series only lives in our memories as I would have liked to see it again. As R C Smith says, Dear BBC, please check your archives.
