Real scary at the time
10 December 2013 | by rcsmith56See all my reviews

I recollect seeing this program when I was an 8 year old kid screened on BBC TV in black and white and from what little I can remember, it was pretty scary. I recollect in one episode one of the creatures looming up out of the loch ( lake ) close to the shore line in front of a couple of people. Needless to say that night I didn't sleep too soundly.

If as I have read is correct, no footage of this series still exists then it's a real shame as I would have liked to refresh my memory of the series.

Dear BBC, please check your archives just in case!
