Another loss by vandalism
Like Eva Culver, I have long wanted to revisit this original version. I watched the whole thing first time round, age 6, The memory of the first fight and the arrival of Father Christmas, the visit with Mr Tumnus,the evil Queen, Asian and his breath and his sacrifice on the great stone table. The way the animal costumes were made. Action, emotion and excitement. This series was so much better than the later BBC versions of Narnia. It also prompted me to buy the books for myself and read them. It is tragic that this and so many other series are lost to the perpetual, cultural vandalism of the era. I hope these are recovered like the missing Dad's Army, Timeslip and others have re-surfaced.
