The 34th 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, including archival photos of existing costumes and props and original drawings! This one is for Episode 7 from Series 3, 'Badger's Remedy' (originally transmitted in the UK on 12th February 1987), a popular favourite of the 'darker' episodes. This, contrary to what I wrongly say in the video, was also originally released on the 'Patient Toad and Other Stories' video in 1989. We have now (just) headed into autumn 2019, and so this one feels very apt. The entire script can be read on-screen as you watch, so look out for any differences.
Reviews of the series continues as we head through early autumn, on Sunday 8th September 2019, with 'The Open Road Again' (Episode 8 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. :)
