TV: The Changes.

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

I don't know if I would recommend it now, but at the time it some very powerful images and ideas

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

When it was first on aged about 4 or 5

Recollection and revelations

I scared the hell out of me. I have vivid memories of menacing pylons, nearly always think of The Changes when I see one. I also remember a scene in which someone was hiding in a pile of staw or hay whilst their attacker began stabbing into it with a pitch fork.

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
