A great story driven series in the mold of The Twilight Zone. It lasted for 9 seasons during the earlier eighties. Roald Dahl was a gifted writer.
My favirite episodes were

Royal Jelly About a little girl who turned into a bee.
Lamb to the slaughter About an unusual murder weapon
Neck Joan Collins loses her head in a Moore like outdoor statue display.

Does anybody else have memories of this show?

I used to watch that back in the '80s, I can't recall individual episodes though.

Yep He even introduced the first 2 years of the series. It was neat to see him on the show. It was an ITV series I think, but we got the whole series in the states. There was one episode where a young man was in the West of England and stopped in  to a B+B. The proprietor did not get many visitors and wanted to keep him there for company, so she had him stuffed.
Creepy. I always thought twice before staying at a B+b after that episode.
