Genre: Adventure
Director(s): Antonia King

What is that?

It's that famous picture

of the monster.

But it's fake.

How do you know it's fake?

It looks real.

Oh, it's fake all right.

Of course it's fake,

everyone knows that.

Wait now, son. There's more

to that photo than meets the eye.

-Oh, really?

-If you'd like to know the real truth....

Yeah. I wanna know.

-Come on. It'll be fun.

-Come on.

Well, you have to go back

to World War ll.

The Germans had captured

the rest of Europe...

...and were only a hundred miles or so

from these shores.

And you need to know

about a young lad...

...called Angus MacMorrow.

The wee lad was drawn to water...

...but deathly afraid of it

at the same time.

You know something, Angus?

The tide pool

is a very strange, enchanted place.

See these wee beauties?

Now, they are full of luck and magic.


-Aye, Angus.

-You best believe it.

-Can I keep it, Daddy?

Aye. But don't tell your Mummy.

She believes things

should stay where they are.



Angus MacMorrow,

what in heaven's name?

-Sorry. I'm coming.

-Indeed you are.

I thought you'd drowned.

You didn't even get wet.

That piece. Please.

-Thank you.


See you, Archie.

I'd say it's going to rain,

Mrs. MacMorrow.

Think you might be right,

Mr. McCowan.

Would you remind me to tell Clyde

to move the cattle to the lower field?

I'll just put my pail in the workshop.

Well, be quick.

You have to help with the tea.



Can we move the cattle

down to the lower field?

Oh, aye.

I have got nothing better to do.

Mummy. Look what I've got.

-Where'd you get that?

-Every volunteer got four oranges.

I haven't had an orange

in Lord knows how long.

How was the shore?

Did Angus have fun?

Angus, fun?

Angus! Come on in now.

You told me you'd help with the tea.

All the Malay Peninsula

has been overrun.

We are struggling hard

in the Libyan Desert...

...where perhaps another

serious battle will be soon fought.

The whole future of mankind...

...may depend upon our actions

and upon our conduct.

So far we have not failed.

We shall not fail now.

Let us move forward

steadfastly together....


It's all right. There, there.

Here you go. Come on.

That's it.

Come on. Come on.

That's it.

All right, then.

That's a good boy.

It's all right.

Oh, no.

There you are.

It's all right. I'll take care of you.


Angus? Angus, it's bedtime.

How many times

do I have to call you?


Get a move on!

What is it?

Maybe Daddy's with them.

Pull up, lads.

-Do you know anything about this?


-They've got to be here for a reason.

-I don't know.

Excuse me, sir.

Good morning, madam.

Captain Thomas Hamilton,

Are we all set?

The housekeeper, Mrs. MacMorrow,

is making all the arrangements.

-She is?

-Yes. Is she around?

I'm Anne MacMorrow.

Oh, I beg your pardon.

Clearly, HQ have failed to notify you.

My troop is to be billeted here.

What with?

I've hardly any staff.

When Lord Killin went off to the RAF,

only a few of us stayed on here.

Well, we won't expect afternoon tea.

No, only the officers

will be billeted inside the house.

The rest of my men

will camp outside.

Well, I'm afraid I really would need

Lord Killin's permission.

Of course.


-Yes, sir.

From Lord Killin. We're friends,

actually. At Oxford the same year.

All right.

But I have to tell you, our cupboards

are not exactly full these days.

Not to worry. The War Office

keeps us well-supplied.

And what's more, we have a number

of keen hunters in our regiment.

They are trained killers, after all.

You see, Scotland is the front line
