    Default Help Identify 80s TV Flashback to childhood series

    Hi

    Can anyone help me identify this TV show, my memories are very vague but what I do recall is :-

    It was a british TV show from the 1980s. Every week it would have a man possibly returning to his family home and finding an object and having a flashback to his childhood. One episode I can remember is someone was digging in the garden and they find a toy soldier. The adult then has a flashback to him running in the garden and treading on the toy soldier. Obviously this flashback would be the story of the week and not a drug trip! I think the flashback stories were always during 2nd world wartime. I know it was shown around the same time as Shine On Harvey Moon. As a child I prefered this. How I remember the title of Shine on Harvey Moon and not this is most frustrating.

    Thanks for help in advance

    Paul

    The "finding an object" and having a flashback adventure stance rings a bell, but there could be a lot of 1980s TV series which answer that description.

    By the way, welcome to the forum, Paul.

    As childhood was mentioned in the tile, one would almost assume kids.

    ...or even title, and not tile, referring to my previous post.

    Try the 80's Twilight Zone episode, One Life Furnished In Early Poverty.
