Escape Into Night (ITV 1972, Vikki Chambers, Sonia Graham)


In well remembered children's fantasy drama serial Escape Into Night, a young girl suffers nightmare visions of a strange world.

Based on Catherine Storr's novel Marianne Dreams (which was also filmed in the 1980's as Playhouse) which featured the story of a young girl who's drawings become reality while she sleeps.

Like a lot of children's TV of the period the series master tapes were wiped and it now only exists as black and white telerecordings that were made for overseas sale.

Aired From: 19 April - 24 May 1972
