The 30th 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 8 from Series 4, 'Hall for Sale' (originally transmitted 17th February 1988). We are now into the final month of summer, so as an August episode this one is very apt. This was originally released on the VHS cassette 'Lord Toad and Other Stories' in 1992. As a special treat, the entire script to this episode can be read on-screen as you watch, so look out for any differences (quite a few in this one), along with an initial plot summary at the end.
Reviews of the series continues as we head towards the end of summer, on Sunday 18th August 2019, with 'Wayfarers All' (Episode 9 from Series 1).
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. :)
