As he travels home on a train for the Christmas holidays Kay Harker has the strangest feeling something mysterious is about to happen ... there is snow on the wind and wild dogs are roaming the countryside. Then a chance meeting with an old Punch and Judy man, Cole Hawkins, the guardian of the elixir of life and a shabby box of powers, pulls Kay into an array of fantastic worlds where he encounters anciest heroes, wolves, Romans, rats, flashing rings and flying ponies.

This memorable production was first shown in the run up to Christmas in 1984. The enchanting adventures and magical atmosphere hold font memories for many, and are sure to delight a new generation of children. Now available for the first time on DVD with a myriad of special features, you can enjoy this very special production for years to come.
