This Alan Seymour dramatization of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was originally broadcast as a BBC series in 1988. Edited here to feature-length, it's simply superb. Whether you take C. S. Lewis's unsubtle Christian symbolism on board or not, the fact remains that the cycle of Narnia novels, of which The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the first, are among the best children's fantasy stories of all time. For anyone who spent their formative years on Mars, the story concerns four children who find their way into a magical land benevolently ruled by the mystical lion, Aslan (voiced by Ronald Pickup). Aslan has been deposed by the evil White Witch (played wonderfully by a screechingly camp Barbara Kellerman) who has cast all of Narnia into perpetual winter and whose eventual defeat entails a fearful sacrifice. While the special effects are firmly of the Doctor Who school, Lewis's writing is expertly transferred to the small screen and there are robust but credible performances from the four highly plausible young thespians who are cast in the leading roles. It's the perfect video for cozy family (early!) evening viewing, and one that young viewers will return to again and again. Roger Thomas, Amazon
