E. Nesbit`s famous adventure story comes to life in this moving and exciting BBC television series for all the family. The happy, comfortable lives of the well-to-do Faraday children are suddenly shattered when their father (Frederick Treves) is arrested on spying charges and imprisoned. Confused, heartbroken and plunged into poverty, young Bobbie (Jenny Agutter), Peter (Neil MacDermott) and Phyllis (Gillian Bailey) go to live in a rough country cottage with their sick mother (Ann Castle).
Exploring the countryside they make friends with the staff at nearby Meadowvale Station - bumbling porter Mr. Perks and the station master, and become involved in all sorts of adventures along the railway line. Filmed on the famous Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, The Railway Children is BBC family drama at its very best. All seven episodes are included on this DVD, to enjoy again and again.
