Storyline

This series is about two children who are the wards of a cantankerously un-loving uncle. That uncle owns a rug factory that has the typically brutal working conditions of the time that both poor adult and child labourers have to survive. Life is hardly perfect, but things take a turn for the worst when the Uncle, maddened by the fear of bill and tax collectors, sets fire to his own home to prevent its seizure and dies in the process. This leaves the children with no home or guardian. Now the two must struggle to survive on the streets of London, where they learn that there difficult ways of making a living and help is where they least expect it. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Has anyone ever found Midnight is a Place (the movie) in DVD form. I have shown it to my grade 8 class for years but the VCR version is getting a little worn out. We have thoroughly enjoyed watching this series for years and many ex students come back to me and ask if i am still showing it. It would also be neat to find out more about the original actors and where they have gone. Having to write ten lines of text makes very little sense to me because what i originally wrote was all the information i needed at the time. This makes the whole process slow and cumbersome and tends to discourage people not encourage them to use this form of communication.
