TV: M is for...

Magic Ball, The

EARLY SHOT as cut-out cartoonery from the MR BENN mob, with likenesses clearly evident. Every episode involved young, archetypal cap-and-shorts schoolboy Sam visiting his Aunt’s junk shop in some idyllic Cornish village with his magic ball, which somehow triggered a historical escapade involving a different bit of antique crap on the shelves. And as was the law of the time, narrated by RAY BROOKS.

    Actually made by Granada International and shown on ITV, and I think the narrator was Eric Thompson. The fictional village was Haythornswaite.
