The 23rd 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 12 from Series 1, 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' (1984). We are progressing steadily through Summer 2019 and weather, just like in this episode, is now a lot hotter! This was never released on home video until it appeared on DVD and yet remains a classic. It is directly inspired by one of the chapters of the same name in Kenneth Grahame's original book, but with some notable differences. As a special treat, the entire script to this episode can be read on-screen as you watch, so look out for any differences there.
Reviews of the series continues on Sunday 7th July 2019, with 'Fighting Fit' (Episode 7 from Series 4).
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. :)
