The hugely popular classic BBC series, Moondial based on the best-selling book by Helen Cresswell makes its long awaited arrival, in its original unedited version, on DVD courtesy of Second Sight Films.

This fantastic children's fantasy adventure first aired in 1988, with a repeat in 1990 and has been in much demand but unavailable in any format for many years, and now it comes to DVD on 4th May 2015.

When tragedy strikes, 13-year-old Minty (Siri Neal - Urban Ghost Story, Sharpe's Battle) goes to stay with her Aunt Mary and discovers a magical secret within the grounds of the local old mansion. When night time comes and the light of the moon falls on a sundial, Minty is transported back in time to the turn of the century where she discovers two children, Tom and Sarah, who have been troubled by evil forces and severe cruelty. Minty must overcome the spirits and possibly the devil himself in order to save the children.

Linking past and present, this wonderful six-part series is directed by Colin Cant (Coronation Street, Grange Hill) and produced by Paul Stone (Tom's Midnight Garden, The Silver Chair). It was adapted for TV by Helen Cresswell (Lizzie Dripping, The Bagthorpe Saga & The Demon Headmaster screenplay) from her own novel.

What happens when the moon shines on a sundial? It's time to turn back the clock and find out.
