Classic kid's TV series Educating Marmalade and Marmalade at Work come to DVD in August
Out on 19th August, priced at £12.99 each, are Educating Marmalade: The Complete Series and Danger: Marmalade at Work – The Complete Series, each with a 12 certificate.
Starring a young Charlotte Coleman as an irrepressible teenage terror, this series was created by Andrew Davis and available here for the first time in any format.
The first of the two discs also includes the pilot episode Marmalade Atkins in Space, first screened as part of the anthology series Theatre Box in 1981. Runtimes for the full frame single disc releases are 174 and 146 minutes respectively.
Meet Marmalade Atkins: the naughtiest girl in the world! Her wild behaviour has seen her expelled from virtually every school she’s attended, and this fondly remembered kid’s sitcom sees her causing further mayhem at a range of educational, correctional establishments and work experience placements.
From Eton to the Convent of the Blessed Limit, to showbiz at the New York School for Show-Offs and Big-Heads to cookery at Heartburn Hall, Marmalade remains impervious to discipline – to the constant despair of her parents and social worker.
