Enid Blytons Famous Five

Originally aired on UK TV in 1978, The Famous Five is now finally available on DVD.

The Famous Five comprise of 4 humans and a dog: Julian (Marcus Harris), Dick (Gary Russell), Anne (Jennifer Thanisch), their cousin George (Michelle Gallagher) and her dog Timmy.

The plots of each episode involved exploring ruined castles and rolling moors; finding mysterious islands and hidden caves; the Famous Five can find adventure wherever they are. Join them at Kirrin Cottage, or away on their holidays as they encounter smugglers, scoundrels and spies. Thankfully, Uncle Quentin and Aunt Fanny are always around to offer lashings of ginger beer.

Based on the best-selling Enid Blyton series of books, this classic 70 s TV series also features the talent of classic British actors, including; Patrick Troughton, Ronald Fraser, Brian Glover, David Rappaport and an early appearance from Rupert Graves.

Pure nostalgia and absolutely perfect family viewing.
