Three intergalactic adventures from the archives of the Children’s Film Foundation land on DVD for the very first time.
In the award-winning The Glitterball (Harley Cokliss, 1977, 56 mins) two teenage boys try to help a tiny spherical alien get back to its mothership, while the army and a devious petty crook pursue the creature for its wonderful powers. With Ben Buckton, Keith Jayne, Ron Pember and Marjorie Yates.
