The telemovies, like the novels on which they are based, relay the adventures of a number of different British children in the universe of Narnia - a land that has initially fallen under the spell of the evil White Witch, but that experiences redemption via the presence of the lion Aslan. The cast includes Camila Power, Warwick Davis, Tom Baker, Sophie Wilcox, Sophie Cook and Jonathan R. Scott.

    The affects are outdated, but it remains true to the story and pure. I love these far more than the new adaptations. I watch them, then rip them apart.
    These remain my favorites.

    No, it is nothing like Disney's recent adaptations. Everything about this BBC adaptation of the first four Narnia books is dated. From the technology to the acting, the quality is far behind what is being produced today.
    However. There are a few ways that this is dated that I very much appreciate. The innocence of the actors--the children seem like real children who have seen none of the filth that is on television these days. The simplicity and lack of drama -- Lewis wrote simple children's stories, and this adaptation is as gentle and clean as the books. Finally, BBC kept very close to the text of the book. Is it the words of the book merely brought to screen? Far from, and there are many cringe-worthy scenes to attest to that. However, BBC stuck to the plot and characters the book gives, and all of the key elements are here, and no more.

    So, yes, I laugh often when watching these, and as an adult can find them somewhat tedious. But I really appreciate them for what they are, and am glad to sometimes turn back to them and share them with my children.
