With nowhere to play on their new estate, a group of kids constructed a "village" out of salvaged materials only to learn that the area of waste ground was soon to be converted to a car park.
The tale unfolds to show their battle against authority - mayor, engineer, caretaker - and the novel introduction of native american totems into an unexpected European setting.
From what I understand, the show was made in the late 60s although I don't think it was screened in the UK until the first half of the 70s.
So captivated was I at the time that I invested birthday money &/or book tokens when I saw that there was a book of the series. From what I recall the book was a direct and faithful novelisation of the show as opposed to the show being an adaptation of an existing novel.
Especially now that so many of us seem to be revelling in nordic fiction in both the written and televisual forms, I would recommend that anyone wanting to see how this was all done 40+ years ago should pick up a snapshot of yesterday in the form of a (widely available second-hand) copy of this book by Kaj Himmelstrup.
