All eight episodes of the late-sixties TV series about a girl, holidaying with her family in a remote Welsh valley, who stumbles upon ancient magical forces. Alison (Gillian Hills), along with step-brother Roger (Francis Wallis), are spending a few weeks of the summer in Wales, at a house formerly owned by Alison's late father. After discovering a set of dinner plates in the attic, Alison traces the plates' flower pattern onto paper, discovering that they fold in turn into owls. Soon, the house starts to reveal hidden secrets, compelling Alison to experience an ancient legend brought back to life.

I saw Alan Garner lecture at a course in South Wales in the 1990s and was impressed by the way he talked about his works. Both he and his books are of great interest. He has an interest family and background and his books tell quite fascinating stories. The Owl Service particularly blends both the present (of the time production, though dated now) and the ancient past, reality and legend. That the drama was produced in North Wales and on the Wirral is nice since I live in that part of the world myself. I was in my late teens when I read the novel, in my early adulthood when I watched the TV drama and now in middle age seeing the TV drama in DVD form. And in all three periods the story continues to haunt. Today it is less scary than it was originally but nevertheless haunting and memorable.
An aside is that the Stone of Gronw was made special for the series and set up by a river. Years later in the different valley in North Wales a stone with a hole cut through it was found in a river by archaeologists.
I read the book first and also listened to a fabulous retelling the the story broadcast on radio, so watching the DVDs only added to my overall enjoyment of this now cult TV drama. Four stars because I didn't think all the acting was as good as it could have been.
I hope you find my review helpful.
The characters are all good, and story is very close to the book. I never believed it was a child's story, now at 55 I still think it is for adults and children alike. Some sentences, 'mind how you are looking at her' still send shivers when i read or hear it.
Buy and enjoy. It's story telling at it's very best and suitable for all ages.
I had heard of the programme but not the novel so can't say if it follows the book, it does live up to the reviews, stick with it and watch the 8 episodes in chunks rather than one sitting for full enjoyment
