SWALLOWS & AMAZONS was the first novel in Arthur Ransome’s much-loved series following the adventures of four children and their sailing boat Swallow. In this film of the first installment, Roger, Titty, Susan and John are taken on holiday by their mother to the Norfolk Broads, where they are allowed to sail their boat to a nearby island and set up camp.
