That did the trick, Hobbit!
After a bit of searching thru the Children's Foundation films on IMDB, I managed to find it!
It was called "The Glitterball" from 1977 ... although my synopsis wasn't exactly correct, I was close!
Now to try and locate it on VHS or DVD ... both of which seem doubtful.

Children's Foundation stuff is not that easy to come by even on VHS, but best of luck.

I don't know if this is the show you are thinking of, but there was a short medieval series made in 1990's called 'Covington Cross'.

the glitterball or something similar
I am looking for a tv show i can hardly remember. I'd watched it around '88 in childhood in Germany and I think it might be a show from US. It was shown only one time and probably had just a few episodes.
the describtion from glitterball sounds somewhat similar but i only remember one boy and one stranger. They both had a ice-ball like orb in their palm with i believe kind of magical power.
I remember also an intro of this tv show within a blizzard (if i remember it well). You could only see the stormy snow and the stranger coming out of it. There is also his hand shown and within his palm that orb i mentioned.
I think the military were behind them and it's possible the stranger was an alien.
I googled a lot but couldn't find something. If I could find a pic from glitterball I think I could remember the strangers face or better, maybe someone of you already know what i am looking for.
thanks for support

I don't know if this is a film or a book, but I always remember hearing the line "seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness." in it.
I forget where I heard it, apart from John Keats' poem "Ode to autumn."
Can anyone help me out?

Need help identifying a movie!
This movie was made in the late 60s/early 70s, in color. From what I remember, it was possibly about vampires and there was a little girl riding a bus through some wicked village, very dark and spooky. When she arrives at her destination, it appeared to be a school where the headmistress is speaking with the little girl and they are in a room with a large mirror. The headmistress casts no reflection and I believe that's when the little girl becomes frightened...this is how I arrived at the assumption this is a vampire flick.
Any help would put my brain-racking to rest!!! Thanks!

I need help recalling a movie
The film would have been from the 1970's or early 1980's I think. I remember that it was in color. The highlights I can remember from the movie involve a family living in a house in the middle of nowhere. I presume they are in the desert. Some of the events of the movie involve some (claymation?) monsters battling it out hand to hand at night. One event that really stuck out in my mind was a (tiny) spaceship that was floating about the house. This would have been toward the end of the movie. The end of the movie had the family walking through the desert and coming to the outskirts of a very futuristic looking city. There may have been other spaceships in the movie. It seems to me that there were but I cannot recall 100%.
The only title that I can bring to mind seems like it was "The people that time forgot" or something very simllar but of course, that is not correct. Though I would swear that the word 'time' is in the title.
I am pulling my hair out over this one. Thanks for any help.

Back in the late 1960's or early 1970's, there was either a movie or a TV-series that centered around a group of seven people who were killed in a plane crash in Tibet and then brought back to life by some good Samaritan monk in a remote, unheard-of monastary. Now, unable to die, these seven were sent off to fight the forces of evil....
It was a British production and I'm not sure if it was a movie or TV-series but I haven't been able to find any info on it anywhere.
I would love to find out what it was....

boyo - that sounds a lot like 'The Champions' - however there were only three of them (heroes that is). It was a TV series.

Yes it was. It is available on DVD, in the UK anyway:
I have a set and remember it from the 1960's. It's not dated well, but can be undemanding fun.
