This review is from: Look Back On 70's Telly - Issue 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a reminder of youth, coming home from school, throwing off the snorkel jacket, then waiting 5 minutes for the TV to warm up to experience Roy North snorting through a "My old Man's a Dustman".on GET IT TOGETHER - a hell and a joy in equal measure.
God the seventies were shocking!
Watching these children's TV thirty years later- it has to be said there are some real terrors here, notably YOU MUST BE JOKING which had me hiding behind the settee squirming fighting for the remote.
Black Beauty and Follyfoot Farm are well crafted and made with love. Raven is very much the stock children's drama of the time - a little creepy, dark and odd.
It has to be said at least they made properly constructed dramas for children back then.
A mixed bag here. But everyone worth watching for different reasons. At the moment I get oodles of demented pleasure from watching this great double DVD set.
However its a DVD that won't stand repeated exposure.
