Welcome to "thechestnut.com"
The home of Little Gems

This site is dedicated to the Little Gems of children's television programs that have long faded into memory such as Moondial, Into the Labyrinth, The Herbs, Cockleshell Bay, Alias the Jester, Belle and Sebastien, Murun Buchstansangur, The Singing Ringing Tree, Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings (as shown on Captain Kangaroo) and Portland Bill. It also includes recently discovered Gems such as The Big Knights. These and other classics may no longer be seen on our television screens but we hope that this site will bring back vivid memories of those lazy days of the summer school holidays. If you have any thoughts, suggestions, additions etc. then please email me.

Little Gems is best viewed at 1280 x 1024 with 32Bit colour
