WINNER, Parents’ Choice Award and BAFTA Award for Best Children’s Program
Amelia Shankley shines as Sara Crewe in this faithful adaptation of the beloved children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden). Produced for London Weekend Television, this mini-series fully captures the spirit of the original novel and brings all of its extraordinary characters to life.
Sara Crewe has always been the pampered darling of her doting father, a British Indian Army captain, and the exclusive boarding school she attends. But when her father dies and her fortune is lost, Sara becomes the victim of hardship and cruelty. Through friendship, imagination and her own resolute nature, the “little princess” finds her way back to happiness.

This is a story for young and old alike. It shows what it was like back around the end of the 19th century or early 20th century. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Louis Sommer (Jerry)

I saw this years ago and must concur that it's the best version. However, what kind of price is this? The show isn't that long to justify such a cost. The cost is insane!Published 8 months ago by Jojo
