| New kid in town gains adventures & new friends with the aid of a Newfounland dog.
Back in 1979 (I was only 10 years old then) the BBC showed this film as a four part serial in it's original dialogue with English narration by actor Keith Barron. Matic has just moved to an apartment block with his mother, dad is away on business in Libya!. He instantly falls foul of the local tough kids & also acquires a Newfoundland dog called Jakob. The local kids, after a run-in with the police, are forced to patch up their differences with Matic and new friendships are forged. Matic's mother soon finds out that having Jakob is a breach of their tenancy contract & the dog must go. Matic & the kids do their uttermost to save Jakob from eviction. Alas it fails, and Matic's mother informs him that Jakob has gone to a new home. A jolly tale with a rather sad ending but my somewhat vague memories of this film are fond ones nevertheless.
