Leaving an indelible mark on a whole generation of children, ESCAPE INTO NIGHT's surreal, dark tone and eerie sense of unearthliness is still remembered, perhaps with a sense of unease, after nearly 40 years.

Schoolgirl Marianne is confined to bed after a riding accident, she begins to sketch drawings of an imaginary place. In her sleep the sketches begin to appear in her dreams. She draws an imposing house to investigate and is shocked to discover a boy remorsefully looking at her through one of the windows, just the beginning of a nightmarish turn for the worse...

The series was made by Ruth Boswell (Timeslip, The Tomorrow People) from Catherine Storr's novel `Marianne Dreams'
