Lassie déjà vu filmed in the magnificent British Isles with more than enough animal stampedes to enthrall an entire theatre of ten year olds, and their parents.

Knows that kids live in a grown-up world, that they are not isolated from such realities as unemployment or war, and can relate to the problems of adult characters as well as those of children and animals.
