Knock Three Times was a fairytale style serial, broadcast under the Heyday Theatre banner, about two young kids, Jack and Molly, being caught up in a story involving a Goblin King trapped inside a Grey Pumpkin but determined to make a bid for freedom.
The casting was excellent featuring a star role for Jack Wild but also Hattie Jacques and Please Sir star Liz Gebhardt.
