Synopsis

In the first two episodes (entitled "Prince Caspian") of this 6-part miniseries, when Prince Caspian (Jean-Marc Perret), the rightful heir to the throne of Narnia, finds his life under threat from his uncle the king, who has finally managed to sire a direct heir, he is forced to flee into the forest, where he encounters various anthropomorphic animals willing to assist him. However, their initial encounter with the king's forces does not go well. Meanwhile, the four Pevensie children are waiting at a train station reminiscing somewhat peevishly about the time when they were monarchs, when they are summoned to Narnia by Caspian blowing on his magic horn. In the final four episodes, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader", Edmund (Jonathan R. Scott) and Lucy meet up with their cousin, Eustace Scrubb (David Thwaites), and together they are sucked into a painting where they reunite with the now-adult Caspian, and assist him on the perilous quest on which he is embarked aboard his ship, the Dawn Treader.

Notes

S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Lumping Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader into one block was a bit of a strange decision, as was leaving out The Magician's Nephew, The Horse and His Boy and The Last Battle. This I think is the weakest of the BBC's Narnia films, but it's still solid and likeable.
