Fantasy sitcom. A continuation (6 years later) of the series Worzel Gummidge. This saw Aunt Sally sold to a museum in New Zealand with Worzel following her and getting into all kinds of scrapes once over there. The series was a co-production between the UK and New Zealand.
Fittingly much of the same behind the scene crew were involved as well as Jon Pertwee and Una Stubbs. Maybe it was the New Zealand setting but it was never as popular as the 1970’s version.
