The New Adventures of Black Beauty - Deceptive Appearances

PG
Parental Guidance

A continuation of the classic 70s UK TV series cherished by herds of horse-loving girls, the New Adventures follow Vicky Denning (Amber McWilliams) who has emigrated to the antipodes with her step-mother, where she is captivated by a mystic black horse. The co-production was set in NZ, produced by Tom Parkinson and features many Kiwi names in front of and behind the camera. This extract from the fifth episode sees Vicky and Beauty meet a mysterious travelling circus; and postman Samuel (Bill Kerr) learns a lesson in trusting shysters.

Run along Victoria, come back after lunch and don't lose any letters!
– The postmaster (Bill Kerr) to Vicky (Amber McWilliams)
