The Pogles DVD - Oliver Postgate / Peter Firmin
This was the first series which sets the scene for the later Pogles Wood - 6 x 10 minute episodes - which tell the story of how the Magic Plant came to live with Mr. & Mrs. Pogle.... and also reveals the truth about Pippins identity as the foundling son of the King of the Fairies.
However... the story centres around a very dark and evil old shape-changing Witch.. and is so scary that after broadcasting the series once - the BBC declared it 'too frightening'.. and so since early 1965 is has lain undisturbed and unseen by all..... until now.
With the wonderfully atmospheric music of Vernon Elliott..
..Be warned.. it IS frightening !
