Catweazle - Complete Series (DVD)
TV classic about an 11th century wizard who accidently travels through time to the year 1969!
It's an incredible four decades since Catweazle arrested the boredom of Sunday afternoons to become a television legend, and on this special edition DVD set of both series he returns to enchant a new generation with his unique brand of magical comedy.
Filled with humour, warmth and charm, Catweazle captured the imagination of children everywhere with Richard Carpenter's wondrous story of a bumbling magician and his pet toad, trapped nine hundred years ahead of their own time. Unforgettable for Geoffrey Bayldon's entrancing performance as Catweazle the wizard, the series also boasted a superb regular cast, while guest appearances by some of Britain's finest actors of the period - including Hattie Jacques and Peter Sallis - ensured the quality status of the production.
Catweazle is a magical dip into the past for those who saw these series originally, and a special treat for everyone who will experience this classic for the first time.
