The Big Knights U

The Big Knights

In the far off land of Borovia, where dragons are fierce, witches are wicked, scientists are insane, the economy is bad, and television is in black and white, stands Castle Big: home of The Big Knights, brothers Sir Boris (the finest swordsman in the world), Sir Morris (the most enthusiastic) and their noble pets, Sir Horace the Dog and Sir Doris the Hamster.

The brothers are the height of two men, the weight of four and the strength of sixteen. They right wrongs, rescue princesses and woe betide anything that gets in their way! This does not always make things easy for the inhabitants of Borovia, who struggle to carry on with their everyday lives despite the Big Knights’ constant heroism…

This newly remastered compilation of the best bits of this brilliant BBC children's series (first transmitted in 1999) has been hand-picked by its creators, Neville Astley and Mark Baker, the award-winning animators behind Peppa Pig. Narrated by Alexander Armstrong and voiced with bellowing charm by Brian Blessed (Sir Morris) and David Rintoul (Sir Boris), it’s a wickedly whimsical delight for the whole family - perfect fare for October half term film!
