I watched the clip of "Return of the Native"
where as it might be the "unicorn" scene my sister is remembering the bridge scene is wrong.

I mentioned that in my searching i found someone else looking. here is that post:

I must know the name of this movie it had a girl who went to live with her aunt or something in a house with a ton of clocks, and there was a maypole that these ghost like people would dance around from an underground world. I think I remember their being british accents. Um... there was also a boat she rode to go back in time as she passed through a tunnel. There was a tree carving... I must know the name of this movie its driving me crazy. Anyone know? email me mnirj

thanks for the help and suggestion. it was nice to see Clive Owen in soething a little less... shoot'em up.

Sorry the Return of the Native turned out to be incorrect. I spoke to a friend of mine, and he suggested the following titles:

"Children of the Stones"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075491/

CBS Library - "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079666/

"Into the Labyrinth"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081877/episodes

Ah, Saturnchick... we're following the same trails!

I looked over all of those; the first and third are BBC TV series'. No time-travel canal, no ghosts around the maypole, etc. The second one has truncated versions of stories which didn't sound right. But who knows! Fingers crossed a bell might ring!

logan5 -
checked out the link to "The Great Land of Small"
it has the boat, it has the magic and it has a lead girl... but the time period seems wrong. [Frown] However if Netflix has it I will rent it for a good time.

Saturnchick-
I must rule out "Children of the Stones" for it has male leads and I'm looking for a girl lead (who goes to live with her aunt). And "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary" because it doesn't deem correct. However, "Into the Labyrinth" Intrigues me and I now need to locate a place to watch it. I'm not sure it is correct, but I know as a child I liked the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie and so might have watched this because the title is similar.

Thanks for the help and any more suggestions you have are welcomed.

I noticed that, but it was the closest so far.

Logan...I can't take too much credit for my 3 most recent suggestions. After racking my brain for a while, I'm certain that I've seen the movie Beth is talking about (or at least something very similar). I consulted a friend who is pretty good with these types of things, and he was the one who offered up "Children of the Stones" (which I had never heard of - but he spent some years in England), and "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary" (which I vaguely remember).

As far as "Into the Labyrinth" is concerned, I do remember that one with some clarity. Again, not sure if it quite fits the bill. Nonetheless, I'm a stubborn sort. I will find out the name of this movie.

Me too. It's killing me (ok, maybe not killing but irritating). I know I know it!

I hope one of us does! We must prevail!

That seems to be the trend Saturnchick. [Smile] Everyone remembers it or something similar and yet no one can remember what it is. I find it amusing now. Glad I have a good message board to help me look.
oh; "Into the Labyrinth" is interesting, but not it.
Thanks for all the help. [Smile]
I've rented some of the old movies (Legend, Willow, etc) to see if maybe watching them jogs my brain.

I watched "Legend" (for the first time) and it is - unique. Did not contain anything that I was looking for.

Watched "Labyrinth" for the umpteenth time (still LOVE that movie) and it did not help me remember the one I'm looking for. It did however give me a good laugh (dance the magic dance!).

*sigh* I don't want to give up hope that someone somewhere knows what I'm looking for - but it's getting harder.

You were just focusing on Bowie's trouser python.

Don't give up! I'll keep looking and if I have any ideas (or find it) I'll post updates here.

it is funny how when you're 8 and watch the Labyrinth Bowie's tights aren't that big of a deal. Yet you watch it in your 20s and all of a sudden you're only interested in the "trouser python" instead of that stellar plot and special effects and those adorable Jim Henson puppets.
What would Sarah have done without Hoggle and Ludo? oh Ludo...

and just for you, I'll keep the faith. [Smile]

I always liked Sir Didimus!

While Bowie's pantaloons and what lied beneath were very intriguing, I could never take my eyes of Ms. Connelly's... erm... 'jiggles' when I was younger! Then again, I was slightly older than 8, so...

"But I DO need you..."

ok; so doing some random word pairing in google trying to find... whatever it is.
I entered; children and fog and movie.
What do you know, there is a movie called "Children of the Fog" it came out in 1935
the problem is - I can't find a clip of it, or a plot summary or anything. I just know that it exists.
Can you help? So we can check it off the list?

Sounds like it could be Moondial, a UK tv series from 1988 - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098866/

Which it appears all the eps are on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ivv5SG98cJM

1935? Do you remember this movie being black and white? I think since it's British and called 'Children of the Fog' I would wager that because of the release date it refers to children in the poor parts of London.

The Wizard -
Yes, "Moondial" has been suggested; thanks for the link, I'll give them a watch.

logan5-
The more I try to remember if it was color or b&w the more I can't. I mean, was the field really green, or did I just know it was supposed to be green and therefore remember it that way?
[Frown] It's frustrating trying to recall a memory from so very long ago. Thanks for the insight on "Children of The Fog" (but, I wouldn't rest unless I knew I explored every possible option.)

Trying to get a list of movies the TCM aired during 1987-97; and trying to track down a PBS list as well. hoping those might help. [Smile]

Ok, watched the "Moondial" episodes on YouTube
"Moondial" is NOT what I'm remebering. The one scene where the man with the wheelbarrow just kind of faded away gave me hope - but it is not it. There was no maypole dance, and the girl seemed a bit too old, and she didn't have to return on a boat through a tunnel (or under a bridge) and there wasn't a tree she carved a symbol on.
Thanks for the help though. [Smile]

That's the spirit! 'Sherlock Bethguy'! It's bound to be a TV movie for one of those channels. There are sooooo many. Lifetime? Hallmark?

I realise this thread is long since dead, but I'm also looking for this film. Or as I believe it to have been a TV series.

In addition to what's already been said I also remember a family that was displaced from time. A mother, father, grandmother (who was ill) some children (which is how they met the protagonist I believe) and a baby that would cry constantly.

They were living in the woods and wanted to get back to their own time. They must have come out of the fog and got lost.

There's another person who's also displaced and he believes that by capturing them he'll find his way back, I seem to recall he had a large net.

The series definately ended with some people going on a boat under a bridge, but as I recall it it was the family AND the hunter that were going home.

I may be mixing it up with something else, but this may jog someone's memory or flag up enough keywords for someone else's Google search.

Ahhhhh. Like a bolt of lightning this movies memories strike my brain and I can't remember it's name. Here is certainly what I remember. Girl lead. Living with an older female. Had a younger brother who gets caught by the "watcher" or "snatcher". The people trying to go home are pretty much gypsies. They need to go under a bridge at the right time to enter the other world. The watcher at one point says something about water always finding his own level. Their is a jail in the woods the kids are afraid of. There is a maypole on the other world. The do the maypole dance. They carve their initials in the tree, and they appear in this world. It was a VHS tape. I saw it many times. Likely early 80s. Def. color. Girls name may have been Pollyanna or just Polly.

It's deeply frustrating that so many people seem to be familiar with this, but none of us can ever remember the name! Not even a part of it!

I GOT IT. My sister who is a bit older remembered it immediately. Here is a link.

You'll know it's right from watching the intro. It shows the maypole and the bridge. The music too is unforgettable now that I've heard it again.
