Children of the Stones is a television drama for children produced by HTV in 1976 and broadcast on the United Kingdom’s ITV network in January and February 1977. A one-off serial, the story was depicted over seven episodes and produced by Peter Graham Scott, with Patrick Dromgoole as executive producer. A novelisation by the serial’s writers, Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray also appeared in 1977.

The series is today considered a landmark in quality children’s drama and has been called “the scariest programme ever made for children”.
