Review by Rod Long

A family moves into an old house and the children discover a mysterious sealed room and the skeleton that waits inside.

It’s the remains of a 17th century soldier whose restless spirit still haunts the house and the family decide that they have to exorcise the ghost which is terrifying them all – but is it really the soldier that’s haunting them, or something else?

A Children’s spooky TV show from the seventies which was very atmospheric even if it was very obviously all filmed in a studio. Split over 4-6 episode’s, repeated at various times during the early eighties. I would love to see it again.

What an amazing piece of kit our telly was. Can you imagine having to change channel by turning a knob to tune in BBC2 and forever getting up to realign the aerial and contrast, and the only way to stop the picture from rolling was to give the set a good thump? Do you remember that we only have three channels to watch? Thinking about it, the conversation was better at school next day as everyone seemed to be watching the same thing unlike nowadays where we have too much choice. Aye, the quality of programmes seem to have dwindled when you think back to what we had in our days.
