Tales of the Unexpected: A favourite from my childhood. I used to watch this with my Mum. The earlier episodes were a lot better than the later ones though, probably because Roald Dahl quit after the second season.
In these deliciously nasty stories an internationally acclaimed practitioner of the short narrative works his own brand of black magic: tantalizing, amusing, and sometimes terrifying readers into a new sense of what lurks beneath the ordinary. Included in Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected are such notorious gems of the bizarre as "The Sound Machine," "Lamb to Slaughter," "Neck," and "The Landlady."
