The Blurb - from Play...
Based on the classic children's novel by John Masefield, this tale follows the adventures of Kay Harker, a young boy who finds himself lured into a world of fantasy and danger, after a chance encounter with an old Punch and Judy man.
A magical mix of animation and live-action, this spectacular production is guaranteed to thrill the fantasies of children and adults alike. Seldom is a story so sophisticated as to draw its audience, spellbound, into a series of such enchanting adventures as those we share with young Kay Harker.
As he travels home on the train for the Christmas holidays Kay Harker has the strangest feeling something very mysterious is about to happen... there is snow on the wind and wild dogs are roaming the countryside. Then a chance meeting with an old Punch and Judy man, Cole Hawlins, the guardian of the elixir of life and a shabby box of powers, pulls Kay into an array of fantastic worlds where he encounters ancient heroes, wolves, Romans, rats, flashing rings and flying ponies.
This memorable production was first shown just before Christmas 1984. The enchanting adventures and magical atmosphere hold fond memories for many, and are sure to delight a new generation of children. Now available for the first time on DVD with a myriad of special features, you can enjoy this very special production for years to come.
