The 57th of my video reviews, aimed at us nostalgic adults, dedicated to the making of Cosgrove Hall's 1980'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 13 from Series 4, 'Happy New Year' (originally transmitted in the UK on 23rd March 1988). It was also released on the 'Mole's Cousin and Other Stories' video in 1989 and 1991, before finally becoming available on DVD from 2008. The entire script can be read on-screen as you watch, so look our for any differences, including a few bits of deleted dialogue.
Happy New Year to everyone for 2020! We delve further into the winter with my review for 'Fancy Dress' (Series 2, Episode 13) on Sunday 12th January 2020.
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. :)
