In This House, Everything is Twice

I am eternally grateful for whoever it was that seems to have posted the entire TV series of The Children Of Green Knowe on Youtube. Whoever you are, thank you, thank you, thank you.

As a kid I was enthralled by it, it was unmissable.

I've never been one for childrens TV nostalgia. Mostly when you go back and watch it it's shit. But there are exceptions and this is one of them, it's a little bit of magic and was written by Lucy Boston, a writer with a truly wonderful imagination. Even then it didn't have a patch on LBs original books which, if you've not read them, are an astonishing example of childrens writing.

I am simply going to lap this up, watching again and again.

Once again, whoever you are, thank you!
