The Famous Five

I think I may have reverted to childhood a little the last few days, ever since I found all of the 1978 series of the famous five on youtube. I used to love this series when I was young, and I even enjoyed the more recent 1996 series. The books have long held a special place in my heart as have other Enid Blyton series like the Adventure series. The secret seven were good at the time, but seemed to be better when young, although the famous five and adventure series I can still read (and enjoy) today. The drama Enid with Helena Bonham Carter in the title role recently screened had prompted my renewed interest. It was a very revealing programme giving a totally different view of Enid Blyton to that expected.
