    Worth noting that the theme music will feature as part of the BBC Radiophonic 50th Anniversary Retrospective double CD to be released by Mute in November.

    I've given up looking for this title Billy, I've purchased the book instead from Amazon.

    I think the problem with this title not finding its way onto the trading network is because there appears to be no viewing copy in the BBC archives for some kind soul to liberate. Only the film negative exists at Windmill Road - there doesn't even appear to be a positive print held. I think it was only screened once, so if nobody taped it on tx and kept it, then the only copy is that master negative, and its highly unlikely that anything will ever be done with that unless it was called up for a repeat or dvd release. And we all know how unlikely thats gonna be! A great pity, as I saw this on transmission and thoroughly enjoyed it. A very spooky drama for kids that deserves another outing.

    I've recently read the book and it's a shame that the TV adaptation is unlikely to turn up-remake this please BBC!

    I remember it from the time. My friend Paul Higson has a copy, but I've been asking him to do me one for a decade now and he's STILL too busy working three jobs a week just to survive to do so, or indeed purchase the necessary hardware. That's living with the after-effects of Thatcherism for you....

    Fantastic! that's my Christmas Eve ghost story sorted for this year. I'm ripping it from YouTube now, just incase it is removed by the Beeb.

    Cheers Bill, would never have known it was up!
