Re: British 1970s Children's Films

I remember a serialised Robinson Crusoe, but that was possibly late 1960s rather than 70s - I seem to remember it being very crackly black and white.

And of course The Railway Children, already mentioned above.

Re: British 1970s Children's Films

The Ringing, Singing Tree goldfish would probably have scared me too. Later, I declined to see Jaws, feeling I would never get into the ocean again if I did watch it.

I remember loving "The Snow Queen," a Russian film. But I was also traumatised for years by "Meet The Mummy." It took me about twenty years to realise that it had Abbott and Costello in it, so was actually supposed to be a comedy.

I do wonder about the far more graphic movies made nowadays, and the possible effects they can have on children. Or was it just me? :-)

Re: British 1970s Children's Films

Having just got a box-set of Hammer films from the 60's and 70's they would possibly pass as children's films these days..... didn't they used to be on late on a Friday night ?

Which reminded me: The Swiss Family Robinson. That movie had a handsome young actor named Fritz. No wonder I came to Switzerland...

Can anyone else remember the 1970's children's films that used to appear on the BBC? Usually on a Friday?

I remember them from the early (very early) 1980s - I was trying to reference to them on the web - but so far nothing.

Anyone?
Yes I remember them. One was called Black Island and had a young Michael Elphick in it. I think another was called 'once upon a ghost'

YES, that's the one ! Can't remember anything of the story, but I could have sung you the theme tune no problem at all. If I could sing, that is.

Fluff spoke to me when I played the video backwards....


The most scary TV production I watched as a kid was from the BBC: The Tripods.

Surely, this was the real Friday afternoon fare (Children's Film Foundation):

Closing titles only on YT, but click link below for intro - including Peter Firth (of Spooks fame).

Re: British 1970s Children's Films

The French are coming (with the second rate dubbers):





Now the US imports:



Although these are all probably too early, maybe this fits the timeline better:





I've probably lost the plot by now.

Re: British 1970s Children's Films

The 1974 Carrie's War tv series that RTE (Irish tv) had on a few years later, loved it and was so upset when Carrie saw Hepzibah's cottage burning from the train on the way back to London, I was distraught and haunted by it as a kid..

The Secret Garden was another one I loved, again the TV Series, late 70s..

Growing up in the back ar3e of Tipperary, saw few films as a kid - that was for the cultured town folk who had the luxury of picture houses

I remember my six or seven year old self being really annoyed when that "White Horses" thing was first put on - if I remember rightly replacing Casey Jones in the same timeslot. I was into trains, definitely not horses...
