All six episodes of the spooky, spine-tingling 1970s children's supernatural drama series.

Peter Sallis stars as Milton Guest, the eccentric but good-natured ghost hunter who is called upon to exorcise the restless spirits that are soon driving the family to distraction.

The plot is simple. The family of the conductor of the Bristol Chamber Orchestra move into a spooky old house in the Clifton area of Bristol, which has been in the family of its previous owners for centuries. A series of strange events occur. The two sons then enrol the assistance of ghost hunter extraordinaire, Milton Guest, beautifully hammed up by Peter Sallis. The daughter Jenny, however, feels sorry for the ghosts and wants them to stay. There's a back-story involving the 1831 Bristol Riots, which allows the producers to get some local history in. In the end, the ghosts are exorcised... or are they?
The results are decidedly odd. The first three or four episodes are genuinely eerie. Then, with the appearance of Peter Sallis, it all goes a bit Rentaghost. The final episode is almost comic. At other times it feels like a schools programme, with its low production values and large slices of local history clumsily introduced into the dialogue (Bristoleans hoping for nostalgic shots of 1970s Clifton will, however, be disappointed - it's shot entirely in the studio). Personally, I found it charming - it took me right back to my 70s childhood when there was lots of this sort of thing on the box. But if you're likely to be put off by creaky sets and dodgy special effects, or are looking for something more spine-tingling, this might not be for you.
This series tells the story of a family who move into a neglected murky old house in Bristol, unbeknown to them the house holds many secrets, and following a series of supernatural occurrences, the family realise they are not alone, and eventually discover a skeleton in a walled-up room.
The most familiar face amongst the cast is Peter Sallis, as eccentric ghost hunter Milton Guest, who is called in to lay the troubled spirits to rest.
The later stages of the series, in my opinion, lose a considerable amount of the atmosphere of the earlier episodes, which prompted me to award four stars instead of five, but it's still a good series. What modern audiences will make of it is hard to predict, but for those like me with fond memories of childrens dramas from the 1970's, this is worth adding to your collection.
This series was another feather in the cap for HTV West, who had a glowing reputation for their childrens dramas. This Network release contains all six, 25 minute episodes, with good picture and sound quality. No extras or subtitles.
So I was delighted to purchase the entire series on DVD. I could now relieve my boyhood dreams whenever I wanted to.
The seller was excellent and the DVD arrived in only 48 hrs. This impressed me and I would not hesitate to use this seller again in the near future. This series remains wonderful with strong acting from all of the cast. I would recommend this wonderful series to very many of my friends in the future. Keep up the good work Amazon!

Very atmospheric and quite spooky for a kids' TV series. I don't remember the original...or maybe it was too traumatic and I blocked it out. A strange mix of chilling and daft. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Winterpants

This is a good old fashioned ghost story, with the sort of dreamlike creepiness common to 1970s productions of this sort.
The story moves with appropriate pace. Read more
