Film: ★★★☆☆ Release: ★★★★★ This fascinating children’s drama from the 1970s (repeated in the 80s) is a weird and unnerving piece of work. Brought back into the public’s consciousness by the BFI in this beautifully put together edition released to tie-in with their Sci-Fi season, the programme is a product of its time and features some very stilted acting from the central child actors. However, to berate it for this would be to miss the point. This is more of a historical and cultural document than a work to be judged by today’s standards.
