Giveaway #477 : Win 2 x Moondial DVDs - closed - winners Barry Page, Jayne Townson


The hugely popular classic BBC series Moondial, based on the best-selling book by Helen Cresswell, makes its long awaited arrival, in its original unedited version, on DVD, courtesy of Second Sight Films. This fantastic children’s fantasy adventure, which first aired in 1988, comes to DVD on 4th May 2015.

When 13-year-old Minty goes to stay with her Aunt Mary, she discovers a magical secret within the grounds of the local old mansion. When nighttime comes and the light of the moon falls on a sundial, Minty is transported back in time where she discovers two children at the mercy of evil forces.

Linking past and present, this wonderful six-part series is directed by Colin Cant (Coronation Street, Grange Hill) and produced by Paul Stone (Tom’s Midnight Garden, The Silver Chair). It was adapted for TV by Helen Cresswell (Lizzie Dripping, The Bagthorpe Saga & The Demon Headmaster screenplay) from her own novel.
