Filmed during the legendary drought summer of 1976 and broadcast in 1977 - The Children of the Stones was and is the most frightening children's tv programme ever made. It scared the life out of me when I first watched it as a 6 year old. I only watched it once but the impact has never left me. From the scary opening sequence, with the spooky music and eerie shots of the stones of Avebury circle. I've just watched it again after 36 years and have been impressed how well it has aged. Its still atmospheric and the plot is intelligent. They call it "The Wicker Man" for children. I agree. Best children's tv show ever.
