Of note here are the location shots (of which there are many and wonderful they are too) and a very young looking Nigel Havers. If TV from the 70s, or period dramas are of interest to you (and it isn't really a kids programme at all), then this is for you. It is surprising it missed the axe of those employed in the 70s to wipe shows, by is a welcome release none the less.
This was released in the era of great Children's TV series like The Tomorrow People, Shy, Children of the Stones, Arthur of the Britons mostly from ITV (I think!!) and The Legend of Robin Hood from BBC. Anyway, this stuff was our daily fare as young 'single channel' primary school kids. It started just after school was finished at 3:30pm and each episode only lasted 30 mins so enough time to eat and get ready to go out and play!! Oh those were the days --- which is important to remember when reviewing these series. Unless you are a TV history buff, or have some similar reason, there is really no point in watching these unless you saw them the first time around. They were low budget and cannot visually compete with today's offerings and to be honest that's not the idea. If they were good, then they've already been redone numerous times and as for the rest, well it's enough if they can help recall memories and feelings and the contentment of easier times (I think it's called youth!!!)
The Three parts are not equivalent, if you like old series from the 70's try this one.
I would like to know who is the bowmaker.

This is a three disc set. Discs one and two are boring drivel. So it's all the more surprising that disc three is great. Read morePublished on 12 Nov. 2014 by coolsimon

I remembered this from when I was a kid but had missed some of the episodes so it was great to fill in the gaps.Published on 30 May 2014 by Son of the Desert
I wondered why the series was digitised. It is extremely interesting as retroTV and the age of the original footage regrettably detracts from Stevenson's story.Published on 25 Feb. 2014 by zweledinga p. jordan
Wow this is a shocker. At first I thought that I couldn't get on with this product because it feels so dated in terms of camera work, acting style etc. Read morePublished on 14 Jan. 2014 by mrbramble
