A BBC Dramatization
1 hour 50 minutes, 2 cassettes
Heidi, a lively orphan girl, goes to live with her grandfather in a little hut high in the Alps. Soon she is in perfect harmony with her surroundings leading a carefree life with her grandfather and her constant companion, Peter, a young goatherd. But her happiness is short-lived when she is sent to stay with a rich city family as a companion for her sick cousin Clara. Although she becomes fond of the older girl, Heidi is terribly homesick. Eventually, though, she manages to return to the Alps and find happiness once again for herself and her friends.
Heidi has charmed readers since it's original publication in 1880. Much more than a children's story, the narrative is also a lesson on the precarious nature of freedom, a luxury too often taken for granted. Now Heidi's world-the tranquillity of the Alps, the crisp mountain air, as well as the harried bustle of city living- is brought magically to life in this special audio dramatization. Produced by the world's foremost creators of radio entertainment and featuring stirring music and sound effects, listeners young and old will enjoy this most popular of children's stories ever written.
