"Dark Towers in danger!"

This is part 1 of "Dark Towers", a British show made in 1981 but used for many years after to teach children basic reading skills.

In this episode: Tracy hates people, but loves her dog Towser. Edward Dark hates people, but enjoys books. Can these two barely-literate misanthropes overcome their smoldering sexual chemistry and save Dark Towers from fiery oblivion? Maybe, with help from supernatural forces beyond all understanding. Also: Edward is crackers.

For the rest of the series, I have helpfully removed all the boring educational parts that teach you about reading, and skipped straight to the good stuff. In this first installment, I've included the introduction of Wordy the Horrible Typewriter Part and his somewhat batty librarian friend, just to give you a taste.
