I thought this 1980's BBC production had much more magic and wonder than the latest block-buster film. It has a genuine war-time atmosphere and a sense of the fairy-tale about it that the excessively colourful and picture-perfect Narnia film lacks. The children play well and Mr Tumnus is utterly lovable; Edmund is a proper little brat who deserves a spanking; and Lucy is just an ordinary girl who just happens to have discovered a magical wardrobe - there is nothing glamorous or ideal about these characters, they're not covered in make-up and they're not physically faultless, so you can lose yourself in the simpleness of this production and forget that this is a film-world. Too few productions like this one come out these days! If you'd like your children to see a film in which the children don't look incredibly perfect but like ordinary girls and boys, this will be lovely. There are 8 episodes, all faithful to the book (with some minor abridgements) and they reflect the Narnia of C.S. Lewis and the mood of his book wonderfully.
This is a story with a timeless appeal which my children age 5,7 and 8 were glued to from beginning to end.There is nothing unsuitable for children and we are currently watching the other 2 companion DVDs
I enjoyed this as much today as I did when I first watched almost 20 years ago. My granddaughter was enchanted. Pure magic.
