      • Although widely-regarded as one of the greatest childrenís authors of all-time, Roald Dahl also wrote chilling adult fiction, taking the twisted ideas used to entertain children and thrilling adults with similar themes. Much-gossiped about in its day, the surprising stories Ė usually with a sting in the tale Ė enthralled a nation the moment the iconic titles started.

        Sinister and with a touch of the macabre, Tales of the Unexpected holds, at its heart, a core of black humour that makes each story both compelling and surprising, with a twist in each tale that delighted audiences across the country.

      • This complete eighth series, first transmitted to critical acclaim in 1988, features nine outstanding episodes showcasing powerful performances from a heavyweight cast that includes Joss Ackland, Pauline Collins, John Alderton, Richard Briers, Patricia Routledge, Jim Broadbent, Peter Davison, Glynis Barber, Michael Brandon and David Suchet.
