VIDEO REVIEW - Fancy Dress (Series 2, Episode 13)
The 58th 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 2, 'Fancy Dress' (originally transmitted in the UK on 25th March 1986). It was also released on the 'Masquerade' video in 1987, before finally becoming available on DVD from 2003. The entire script can be read on-screen as you watch, so look our for any differences, including an alternative song written by Brian Trueman.
As a winter episode this one feels apt for the time of year. We delve further into the winter with my review for '"Winter Haunts"' (Series 3, Episode 13) on Sunday 19th 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. :)
