The Toby Man. By Dick King-smith. BBC young collection 1993 (68mins)

Young Tod Golightly knows what a highwayman should say and do, but it isn’t as easy as he first thought. So he finds himself some unlikely accomplices – Matilda, a wise old donkey and her friend Digby the dog, a look-out magpie and a clever ferret – and together they pull off their first daring robbery. But the wiley Bow Street Runners are after Tod and it is up to his loyal friends to save him form the gallows….but how will they manage it?
