The Famous Five: Five on a Treasure Island

Julian, Dick, Ann, Georgina and Timmy the dog investigate the secret of a mysterious shipwreck in the first of Enid Blyton’s ripping adventures.

The holidays have finally arrived and Julian, Dick and Ann are looking forward to spending a long hot summer with their feisty tomboy cousin Georgina – or George as she prefers to be known. But picnics and bike rides are put on hold when George and her new pal Timmy the dog share the secret of a mysterious shipwreck with the others. An exciting discovery is in store for the intrepid Five – but they are not alone.

Adapted from the first of Enid Blyton’s popular Famous Five stories this ripping adventure tale in eight thrilling instalments is great fun for all the family. Enid Blyton herself was on hand to cast the film which follows the Five as they investigate the secret of the wreck. Chock-full of cliffhangers and mystery, the popular Children’s Film Foundation serial remains close to the spirit of the book. With enthusiastic performances from some well-cast young actors, these are delightful films which every Famous Five fan will want to treasure.
