UBIQUITOUS SCHOOL reading homework, here condensed into more agreeable half hour portions, charting exploits (or lack of them) of titular evacuee and brother Nick forced to move from Adolf-menaced London to old woman-menaced Welsh hamlet called (is someone laughing at the back?) Druid’s Bottom. Lots of grizzled and grim pensioners abound. One is called Mrs Gotobed. Another is Mr Sandwich. Children frustrated by vaguely sinister rules like only using the stairs once a day for fear of wearing out the carpet. Threat of something other-worldly never far away. Old skull knocking around suggest at least one present is a witch. Not a lot happened, but at the time it was the most expensive kids drama the Beeb had ever done and pretty much set the bar for everything that followed.
