Heaven On Earth follows several children and teens as they are sent from their homes in Wales and England to Canada. Host families await them and each child must adapt to their new surroundings, deal with their new duties and families and survive by holding into their friendships. Heaven on Earth is based on historical events and focuses on the trials and hardships of children who were unwanted but ultimately found their place in the world.

Stars Sarah Polly

Looks good eh ?

Okay; we'll see what happens:

I JUST bought this movie on VHS from an Australian seller on eBay.

It looks to be, and seller says it is [ ;) ] an authentic 'Former Rental' VHS tape that is in 'Very Good' condition.

(LOL: Although the ripped cover art might suggest otherwise... :think )

It's PAL, and though I have a PAL VHS player, I DON'T have a converter to play it on my NTSC TV. :( (NOR do I have a PAL TV...) But I have a friend that says he will convert it to NTSC DVD for me pretty cheap... lol

Again; we'll see how all this pans out, but it will probably be after the New Year before I'm able to rip it and get it posted... :bigups

i just realized there are two different movies here being discussed. This [REQ] thread by billanben is an episode from a TV series http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093168/

The movie kev has is perhaps from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093167/ also mentioned here https://www.first-loves.net/forums/v ... n+on+Earth

I don't know - kev's VHS cover is titled Heaven ON Earth and has "A New Life A New Country" which is the topic of this thread. The link you mentioned is Heaven AND Earth.

Heaven on Earth (this thread)

Heaven and Earth (the other thread)

Kev made the same comment about having a pal vhs to convert in the other thread almost same title(coincidence?) and what caught my eye was billanben's comment about Sarah Polly.

Again :think

Perhaps you are correct about this being the same movie. This photo looks to be what kev has. I still wonder if the other thread is a coincidence?

I think kev got the two confused too. "Heaven and Earth (1987)" didn't seem to have much promotion and probably wasn't even distributed outside the US much - if at all - so a PAL version of it seems less than likely. Also, no mention of Sarah Polly was made in that thread. We should wait for kev to confirm.

The girl, Marcie Leeds [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0498598/ ] was in a few other well known movies [Near Dark; Beaches; Wheels of Terror] so I'm kinda surprised that THIS movie has never been picked up and released on vid or DVD... (At least not in the US; it's country of ORIGIN!!)

Not a big deal. I was sharping my movie detective work. In my search I found this movie is currently being sold on E-bay from a seller in Santa Fe(New Mexico). Although the movie looks interesting it is not that interesting to me to buy currently. The part I love about these movies is the rarity. It is always satisfying when we find one. We have several files here at FLM that cannot be found anywhere else. :cool

A much-shortened version (missing about 30 minutes from the beginning and middle!) is at YouTube, taken from an ancient VHS recorded from a television broadcast.

Code: Select all

If this were complete I would consider it worth changing to a full [REL], but with the quality this bad and missing 30% of the footage I won't unless someone really wants me to. It's a shame, though, because it looked like the story had real potential, and I enjoyed what was available to watch. I will keep telling myself that some day the whole series will get released on 4kUHD. Or (more likely) someone will find the commercially produced VHS at Goodwill.
