Description

Years before the first big-screen adaptations of C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia reached audiences, the BBC produced its own versions of the first four books in the series (The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair), all of which appear in this unique collection, as they originally aired on British television. The telemovies, like the novels on which they are based, relay the adventures of a number of different British children in the universe of Narnia - a land that has initially fallen under the spell of the evil White Witch, but that experiences redemption via the presence of the lion Aslan. The cast includes Camila Power, Warwick Davis, Tom Baker, Sophie Wilcox, Sophie Cook and Jonathan R. Scott.
