I remember the excitement with Rosemary Sutcliff when the BBC TV made a series of her historical novel for children and young adults The Eagle of the Ninth. She adored the portrayal of Marcus, the hero. I probably have old old video tapes of hers in the attic. I have no idea if the BBC still has copies in its archives and vaults . Does anyone know? It was broadcast in six episodes.
