Alec Christie stars in this miniseries adaptation of Lucy M.
Boston's novels. Toseland (Christie) is excited about going home for the Christmas holidays but when his parents reveal they are going away he resides himself to the fact that he must stay at boarding school.
His Christmas looks set to be rather lonely until he receives a call from his great-grandmother (Daphne Oxenford) who invites him to stay at her 11th century manor house.
As Toseland settles in, he begins to see the spirits of the children who have previously occupied Green Knowe house and he realises that this is going to be no ordinary Christmas.
