Through The Dragon's Eye

If someone asked me to name one thing I remember from first school, it would have to be a TV programme we all had to gather for, sit on the cold varnished floor - with legs crossed too, called Through The Dragon's Eye.

It was part of BBC Two's "Look and Read" educational type of programmes, and this one was the best of the bunch. It starts with three kids (Amanda, Jenny and Scott) who have painted onto a wall in their school playground a scenic landscape and a dragon. As soon as Jenny adds the final touch to the painting, by dotting the dragon's eye, it winks at them and the dragon - called Gorwen - comes to life.

The children get invited into this new world, called Pelamar and meet the keepers (Boris, Doris and Morris) and get told about the problem they're currently having. The object that keeps them all alive and healthy (Veetacore) has exploded and with 3 pieces (Veeton's) missing, they cannot rebuild it without having to go on a quest to find the missing pieces. Another downside too, is that most of the people in Pelamar are illiterate. The children help them throughout the episodes, however evil turns up mid-way though the series in the form of a erm, not quite sure what it is, but as most people have mentioned on Twitter and other sites, "the vision of their nightmares", known as Charn.

I won't spoil anymore of it, if you haven't already seen it, but it really is a good programme for kids, well I say kids, I've spent most of today sitting and watching it from start to finish again. I'm just annoyed that they don't make programmes like this anymore.

If you haven't already seen it or you want to see it again, the episodes (each in 2 parts) are available on YouTube, or available to watch below (in order). Enjoy. :)
