Does anyone remember...
daro2096
a children's serial that aired in the 1980s that was 6 episodes and the cliff hanger to episode 5 was statues, maybes stones becoming alive and moving? That is all I remember about it. Not even sure if it was BBC or ITV.

I know it is not Children of the Stones. Just watched that and it wasn't that.

It is driving me crazy not knowing. Hopefully someone knows what it is called.

Is it too obvious to mention The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe/The Chronicles of Narnia?

Oh yes. Paperhouse! Very scary for kids (and adults). The book by Marianne Storr is excellent.
I mean, Catherine Storr - d'oh!

Moondial?

I can't help with the original question, I'm afraid, but I had the book of Moondial as a kid, and loved it. Is the TV series worth looking for?

Absolutely! Siri Neal is terrific as Minty, and Jacqueline Pearce totally awesome as Miss Raven / Miss Vole.

I don't think I've seen the TV series, but I read the book when I was about 11 and found it deeply disturbing.

Put it this way...our Supreme Commander is in it...Miss Pearce. If I recall, daughter No. 1 quite enjoyed it.

Moondial. Pretty sure that’s right.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

No... completely wrong. Its Marianne Dreams. ... or Paper House. Of course. Anna Caulder Marshall I think.

If that is the one then the video tapes have been lost as I remember it was in colour when I saw it back in the 1980s unless it was re-made. There are only 2 episodes on YouTube so I don't know if it is the one or not.
 
Anniew
It was made in 1972. Called escape into night. Paper house was a film adaptation. Made in colour but only a couple of black and white prints survive.

All right, Travisina and Littlesue, you've convinced me. One DVD copy of Moondial ordered.
 
rojkerr1
there was an episode of the Tomorrow people remake called living stones, Danny John Jules as Byron Lucifer
 
rojkerr1
got Escape into Night on dvd,

From the description it made me think it could be The Enchanted Castle, BBC version of a book by E. Nesbit. Shown in 1979 and repeated in 1981.

Does have statues coming to life, can't remember which episode that was.


With Moondial, have to say I do enjoy that series. Jacqueline Pearce gives, of course, a great performance.

It could be that too. Sounds about the right period of time. It was very early 80s. Was shown late 79 according to BBC and Wikipedia. Didn't give a repeat screening dates though.

Does it have puppets coming to life too? Course my memory could be playing tricks on me this is about 40 years ago.

There is a sequence where the children make dummies to be the audience of a play they are putting on, they do come to life and get described as ugly wuglies.
Other bits that stuck in my memory was a magic ring that turned you invisible and stone dinosaurs in the grounds of the castle.
The repeat date I got from the BBC Genome web-site that gives tv listings from the Radio Times
