The Flaxton Boys

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

From what I can remember, this was on during Sunday afternoons and involved two bespectacled scoolboys who would get up to all sorts of mischievous capers in their sleepy little post-war English village. I seem to remember that it had quite a chirpy theme tune a la 'All Creatures Great And Small'.

    I recall it being shown, in 1969, Monday tea times. The theme music was by Prokofief. The Flaxton Boys consisted of several series, based around Flaxton Hall in Yorkshire, each series being set in a different time and featuring different sets of characters. The one I watched was set in the 1850's. I recall a boy being stuck up the chimney, a mysterious soldier turning up with his face bandaged (he later turned out to be deserter, Martin The Deserter) and there was a portrait in a room with the eyes cut out so a dastardly villain might spy on the goings on in said room from a cavity behind the wall from which the portrait hung.

    Salmon sandwiches and tea in china cups on wet sunday afternoons around the fire watching edwardian boys in long tweed shorts finding secret passages in a country mansion. And I can''t believe no one remembers it.
