William Shatner's A Twist in the Tale: A Crack in Time

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1998

Presented by William Shatner, A Twist In The Tale was an anthology series with each episode featuring a new story for Shatner to tell a group of children gathered round the fireplace. In this adventure, a freak storm causes a strange girl (Westside's Antonia Prebble) to appear in a boy’s bedroom cupboard, only to discover she’s travelled back in time 100 years. When some futuristic technology goes missing and the family farm ends up on the line, the children must put their differences aside. The episode also features a memorable appearance by Craig Parker as the family's accountant.

Well, all the latest technology and style comes from China, doesn't it? Since the second revolution?
– Jem (Antonia Prebble)
