Children's' series from the 1960s
3 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This six-parter, made for the Children's Film Foundation, is a fast-paced, jolly-hockey, and rather fun version of Enid Blyton's novel, 'Five Have A Mystery To Solve'.

Julian, Dick, Anne, their cousin George, Timmy the dog, and for this adventure, Wilfred (who communicates with the animals), find themselves looking after a cottage for the weekend and soon become interested in the mysteries of Whispering Island, a nature reserve owned by the reclusive Sir Hugo.

This being a serial for children it has lots of cliff-hangers, some cartoon bad guys, and several moments for the viewer to cheer or boo. It also has some laughs which will appeal to the adult, but which were perhaps not intended at the time this was filmed.

The five children are generally OK actors, with George and Wilfred being particularly memorable. The serial has its moments of tension which will probably keep young children interested, and the archive print is quite a nice one which is perfectly watchable.
