TV-series Turn On To T-Bag

Diana Barrand


Our heroine Holly arrives in Egypt near a pyramid where she meets up with Scoop Shuttleworth, a journalist, who is looking for the tomb of the Nile Queen. They enter the pyramid to look for this episode's hidden magical item, but when T-Bag and T-Shirt follow them into the pyramid they get lost and end up back at the start. When Holly finally finds the item, a crystal, it gets stolen by a walking mummy!

T-Bag (Tallulah Bag) is a witch-like character who appears in a number of television programmes which ran from the mid-80's to the early 90's.

The setting in which the magical item is hidden is usually a historical period or is taken from folklore or literature. The historical episode "Pyramids" is set in ancient Egypt. This heroine in this series is a girl named Holly.
