Synopsis

Nine year-old Danny lives with his dad in a caravan at the back of the petrol station they run, where his father also works fixing cars. The pair live a contented life - which greatly aggravates a local businessman named Victor Hazell, who wants the land the petrol station is sited on. Victor tries every trick in the book to force them out of their home. So when Danny and his dad hear that Hazell is planning a shooting party to hunt the pheasants in his private wood, they hatch a scheme which will leave the mean-spirited bigwig very red-faced! This is a well-made and highly enjoyable version of the rightly much-loved children's book by Roald Dahl.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
