British 1970s Children's Films

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?

Re: British 1970s Children's Films

Found it - a Google search on page 3 had reference to a Guardian Article - which mentioned this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children's_Film_Foundation - they appeared in the 80s in - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_Film_Special

That was exciting wasn't it?!

I remember something like "The Luckiest Boy in the World" - dubbed from foreign into English.

You want scary, try Apaches. I don't remember it at the time (1977); I was probably, ahem, not in the target age group. But it is still horrible to watch even now. It must have terrified kids (but I suppose that was the point).
