It's good enough to work as a non-IMAX documentary.
9 April 2002 | by waswasereSee all my reviews

Although the title makes it sound like an Enid Blyton book, if you've seen the Channel Four film covering the same story, don't be afraid to watch this as well. The documentary approach, helped along by some stunning landscapes, original footage and modern reconstruction makes this well worth seeing, filling in the gaps which the drama did not cover in full. It would be worth watching even if it wasn't an IMAX presentation.
