A fantastic trip down memory lane for us adults, and an introduction to some truly classic childrens TV for today's youngsters. If you are fed up with banality and political correctness of childrens shows like Balimory & The Tweenies this is for you. From a bygone more innocent time, the shows have lost none of their ability to charm.
Originally released as 3 seperate volumes at around £13 each, this set represents great value for money. It also comes in a very nice presentation box. My only complaint is that although they have done a great job of digitally restoring the picture (the original DVD releases were appalling)Universal Studios have failed to address the annoying and distracting picture wobble in episode 1 of Trumpton. I think with the technology available that could have been sorted. I hope (and believe) it is confined to just the one episode. Also, the sound isn't that great. I'm probably expecting too much from a 40 year old series in these days of Dolby Digital, DTS, THX though!!! If you haven't got it, get it. If you haven't got young kids, pretend you have and relive your childhood!

Pure class. A piece of history and a big part of my childhood in one box. You can't get much better than that. H & R to you. Cheers.
