Children of the Stones was an undisputed landmark in children s television. Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray’s groundbreaking fantasy series, starring Iain Cuthbertson and Gareth Thomas and filmed largely in Avebury in Wiltshire, combined scientific fact and fiction with pagan mythology and rural folklore in its portrayal of a village held captive by the sinister power of its Neolithic stone circle. Intelligent, atmospheric and genuinely unnerving, with a haunting sense of place, the series often cited by those who grew up in the Seventies as the most frightening thing seen on television was the result of collaboration between writers Burnham and Ray, producer Patrick Dromgoole (whose previous credits had included classic HTV series Sky and Arthur of the Britons) and producer/director Peter Graham Scott; classical composer and conductor Sidney Sager scored the series chilling theme and incidental music. Unsurprisingly, Children of the Stones has gained a devoted cult following in the decades since its first transmission in 1977. Special features:  an in-depth booklet by Tim Worthington on HTV s fantasy television programming  a second disc showcasing HTV s cult shows with episodes of Sky, King of the Castle, The Clifton House Mystery and Into the Labyrinth.
