Dir. Claude Whatham (1974), 92mins, Cert.U

A classic childhood film following four children on holiday to the Lake District in 1929 as they are allowed to sail over to the nearby island in their boat Swallow and set up camp for a few days. They soon realise this has been the territory of two other girls who sails the Amazon, and the scene is set for serious rivalry.
