The British miniseries Emlyn's Moon was based on one of the many sci-fi/fantasy novels written by Jenny Nimmo and featuring the character of Welsh youngster Gwyn Griffith. It all began when London-born Nia (Lucy Donovan) moved into Gwyn's hometown of Pendewi, along with her family. Forbidden by her elders to enter the ruins of a chapel, Nia did so anyway, entering a mystical portal that led her to a series of fantastic adventures. Meanwhile, Gwyn (Osian Roberts) used the magical powers which he had accrued in Nimmo's earlier novel The Snow Spider to solve a number of problems within his own family. Also in the cast as the titular Emlyn was Stefan Morris. Drawing heavily upon old Welsh folk legends, the six-episode Emlyn's Moon was broadcast by HTV in 1990.
