Robin Redbreast

4

Welcome to the neighbourhood

From the BBC’s Play For Today strand comes this insidiously creepy rural horror.

Norah (Anna Cropper), a London script editor, moves to a remote country cottage to rebuild her life after a break-up.

The locals seem friendly if a bit odd. But odd turns to sinister and when Norah gets pregnant by a hunky gamekeeper (Andy Bradford), paranoia starts closing in fast…

Directed by ’60s Brit-TV mainstay James MacTaggart, this was originally made in colour, but only the black-and-white 16mm version survives.

Luckily, it doesn’t detract from the chills.
