The nineteenth of my video reviews dedicated to the making of Cosgrove Hall's film and series of 'The Wind in the Willows', featuring 'picture in picture' and the odd 'behind the scenes' image too! This one is for Episode 11 from Series 2, 'Gadget Mad' (1986). We have now headed into Summer 2019! Although weather has been a bit hit and miss it is generally improving and starting to get hotter - and, just like at the start of this episode, poppies have bloomed!. This was originally released on a 'Children's Favourites' video by Lollipop, along with episodes of 'Dangermouse' and 'Count Duckula'. A notable fact: this episode was shown on ITV on 11th March 1986 and was meant to be repeated on Channel 5 on 31st August 1997 - but was postponed, just like most television programmes that day, due to the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Reviews of the series continues as we progress through early Summer on Father's Day, Sunday 16th June 2019, with 'The Great Golfing Gamble' (Episode 10 from Series 2).
All 52 episodes have been sorted into a special 'seasonal' order. The remaining 13 'bonus' episodes (Series 5/the 'Oh! Mr Toad!' spin-off episodes) are being reviewed, one by one, as 'additions' every 4 weeks. Comments very welcome. :)
