Synopsis:
In this memorable BBC dramatisation of E. Nesbit's classic 1906 tale, we follow the adventures of three children; Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis. The children's lives change dramatically when their father is arrested on suspicion of being a spy. With a move from London to Yorkshire, the family take residence in "The Three Chimney's", a house near the railway. During their adventures the children befriend an old man who travels daily on the 0915 train, take care of a Russian exile called Mr. Szczepansky, and help a young boy who is stuck in the tunnel with an injured leg.

Magical period piece - The Railway Children review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
25/09/2008

My daughter aged 11 enjoyed this story but found the black and white film off putting. Jenny Aguter is very breathy and girly; much as i remembered her. For me it was very dated and a bit sugary but enojyable all the same.
