Johnny and the Dead

This live action adaptation was first shown in the UK on 4th April 1995 ITV UK Johnny and the Dead. The series aired as 4 30min episodes.

The series originated from a profile of Terry Pratchett in the young people's arts series Opening Shot in 1993. Andrew Falvey plays the title role of 12 year old Johnny Maxwell, the same role he played in dramatised excerpts from Pratchett's book in this earlier documentary.

"One of the highlights of filming was when Terry Pratchett came out to the shoot one day and said I was the perfect Johnny. I just went bright red, I was so pleased."
