The children’s classic by E. Nesbit centres on the lives of three children whose comfortable, middle-class existence ends when their father is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit. Bobbie, Peter and Phyliss leave their London home and move (with their mother) to a small cottage in Yorkshire where life is very different. Here, they develop a love for the railway where they have a series of adventures, including preventing a train accident, rescuing a boy injured in a tunnel and coming to the aid of a Russian exile.

This adaptation, for all the family, is full of humour, but it is also faithful to the original and is written with great tenderness and insight.
