Catweazle - The Complete Series
It's an incredible four decades since Catweazle arrested the boredom of Sunday afternoons to become a television legend, and on this special edition DVD set of both series he returns to enchant a new generation with his unique brand of magical comedy.
Filled with humour, warmth and charm, Catweazle captured the imagination of children everywhere with Richard Carpenter's wondrous story of a bumbling magician and his pet toad, trapped nine hundred years ahead of their own time. Unforgettable for Geoffrey Bayldon's entrancing performance as Catweazle the wizard, the series also boasted a superb regular cast, while guest appearances by some of Britain's finest actors of the period - including Hattie Jacques and Peter Sallis - ensured the quality status of the production.
Catweazle is a magical dip into the past for those who saw these series originally, and a special treat for everyone who will experience this classic for the first time.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
