Shadows: The Complete Series 2
Atmospheric, superbly scripted and filled with the unexpected, this remarkable anthology series offers spine-tingling psychological and supernatural tales for younger viewers. Capitalising on the success of its fi rst series, producer Ruth Boswell (a major force in children’s television and involved in such memorable productions as Timeslip, The Tomorrow People and Escape into Night) raised the bar with contributions from award-winning authors Penelope Lively, Rosemary Harris, Joan Aiken and Susan Cooper. Strongly remembered to this day, Shadows is one of the quintessential children’s drama series of the 1970s.
 An orphaned girl fights her real-life enemies by believing they are figures from her history book.
 A young girl suddenly finds herself in the miniature world of a Victorian doll’s house.
 A downtrodden teenage boy relives the ancient legend of a youth who shared his plight – in reality, or in his imagination?
But what other terrors hide among the shadows?
