There are a few versions of the secret garden around, but this is my favourite from the BBC. The next best is £10.93 for this.
This enchanting children's classic tells the story of a spoilt, lonely orphan girl whose life is transformed by a secret garden.
After her parents die, Mary Lennox is sent to live in her embittered Uncle's sad and gloomy house on the Yorkshire moors. Left in the care of the servants, the arrogant child soon befriends the maid's brother Dickon and her bedridden cousin Colin, and the three of them find new happiness in an overgrown hidden garden which weaves its magic on all who enter its walls. It is a touching tale of self-reliance, newfound laughter and innocent faith.
This BBC production was originally broadcast between 1st January and 12th February 1975. For the first time this DVD brings together all seven digitally remastered episodes to delight both young and old alike.
