The BBC Presents The Chronicles of Narnia - DVD Set

Back in the Eighties, the BBC turned the first four books of "The Chronicles_of_Narnia" (The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair) into several television mini-series, later edited together into three films. These were often shown here in the U.S. on local PBS stations, which is where I first saw them. While some of the special effects don't hold up well after twenty years, don't let that stop you from watching these if you get a chance. They are really quite good.  Also, watch for an amazing performance by Tom Baker as Puddleglum in "The Silver Chair".  Thankfully, they are all available on DVD in a three disc boxset.
