Great family show
30 May 2010 | by butcher858See all my reviews

Remember this from one of my school summer holidays in the early 80's shown on ITV. Great adventures with the brother "Matt" and his younger sister "Jenny" set in 1850's Canada. They were looking for their Aunt and Uncle after the kids mother died on the crossing over from England. Looking out for the was a man called Adam Carston a mysterious chap who was also on the crossing and a man called Kit who was a real Davy Crocket type who had a great knowledge of the Canadian wilderness. Managed to get 13 of the 26 episodes with the kind help from someone who had posted a clip on youtube started watching them with my 8 year old daughter who enjoys it as much as I did seems to have stood the test of time just 13 more to track down.
