Storyline

The 1640s, the time of the English Civil War. Colonel Beverley, a Royalist, squire of Arnwood and High Keeper of the New Forest, leaves to join the King's army. He dies at the Battle of Naseby, leaving his two sons and two daughters in the care of their Aunt Judith. A troop of Parliamentary soldiers and their Leveller preacher, Abel Corbould, come to Arnwood. The four Beverley children are smuggled out of Arnwood, taken to Jacob Armitage, a royalist forester's home in the forest and hidden there. The children encounter various adventures, become involved with the family of Parliament's new Intendant of the New Forest, Heatherstone, and eventually join a conspiracy to help King Charles, who has escaped from captivity.

Accurate adaption
16 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

An example of the "Classic Childrens Sunday Afternoon Serial", so well done by BBC. True to Marryats book. Played for content rather than style.
