This is just how I remember the story from reading it as a kid (many years ago). Having re-read the book, I realise that the BBC has made quite a few changes, but as far as I can see they are all for the better. Someone complained that maybe there was a little too much running around, and they could have a point, but it is a chase movie. Iain Glen was brilliant. I really enjoyed the music as well, does anyone know if you can get it anywhere?

The locations looked brilliant. True, sometimes not what you'd call authentic (not a sprig of heather in sight), but it captured the breathtaking beauty that the young hero Davie would feel, and if you hadn't been to Scotland, maybe you wouldn't know the difference.

The ending was one of the most moving things I've seen for months on TV.

Let's hope they do Treasure Island next!
