BBC2 films in segments

My memory might be playing tricks on me now, but.... I was watching the old Sci Fi film Invaders From Mars the other day and could swear BBC2 once showed this but in 10-15 minute shorts over like a week - so like a mini series. Would have been the late 80s, maybe around the 6-7pm slot.

Does anyone have any memory of this, or have my memory banks been altered by Invaders From Mars?!!

Hmmm....

No. I'm convinced I'm right! After all, 23 year old memories wouldn't be wrong now, would they!

I wonder if you might be thinking of The Invaders which is a TV series broadcast by BBC 2 around that era.
