Children of the Stones

Coming January 20th, from Acorn Media, who are bringing us the best of British TV on DVD:

" Children of the Stones - A cult hit of late 1970s British television, this eerie drama has lost none of its powers—to intrigue, entertain, unsettle, and scare. The beloved British fantasy series that spooks children and adults alike. Debuting on North American DVD, this classic sci-fi thriller tells of paranoia and the paranormal in a sleepy English village. With shades of Doctor Who, The Watcher in the Woods, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the seven-episode series aired on Nickelodeon's paranormal anthology program The Third Eye in the early 1980s. Filmed on location at the Avebury stone circle—older than nearby Stonehenge—each episode builds relentlessly to a harrowing climax in what becomes, literally, a race against time."
I must have been doing something else in the early 1980s, because I never saw it...but I want to!
