For fans of Malcolm Saville



In 1957, the Children’s Film Foundation filmed Treasure at the Mill by Malcolm Saville. Specially commissioned, it was filmed on location and the people living in the mill took the main roles. The film is on Talking Pictures this morning and you can watch the whole thing on YouTube. I’ve never seen the film, so I’m rather looking forward to it.
