I get a lot of e-mails from people asking me about television shows, made-for-TV movies or miniseries they remember from years or decades past. I try to answer each question as best I can but often recollections are hazy at best and thus impossible to identify, despite my best efforts. Hopefully, by posting these questions here at Television Obscurities for everyone to read someone will come up with the answer. Keep reading for today’s unidentified shows.
This new feature has turned out to be both more popular and more productive than I had hoped. All the questions that stumped me have been answered by visitors. Here are two more questions, both relatively recent, that I hope someone can answer because I sure couldn’t.
For the past five years, I’ve been searching the net, asking friends, and racking my brain, but I haven’t been able to figure out the title of this show I saw when I was a kid. I’m pretty sure it was from Britain, due to the style of production, and it was broadcast in the U.S. in the mid-to-late 80’s. I’m pretty sure I saw it on PBS, too. It was about these three kids who went into a cave one night, and they found a wall they could walk through, but once they walked through, they couldn’t go back the way they came. So each episode, they had to find a wall to pass through to get to a different section of the cave, while trying to find the exit. In each section of the cave were people who had been trapped there, complete with furniture and the like. I don’t remember much else, other than this show captivated me as a kid. Help me out?
I was born in the late 80s but I still remember watching TV from the early 90s. There is one animated show or movie from TV that I seem to remember only a snippet of, and nothing else. I remember towards the end of the show/movie, a girl goes back to the past or a future and can’t remember anything from her past life. In a shop, she sees the boy that has been in her past adventures. And the movie ends. I seem to think that it is a clock making shop and that the girl had long reddish hair. I’m sorry that there is no other information. Thanks whether you can help or not.
Do either of these sound familiar to anyone?
