The New Adventures of Black Beauty - The Old World

Television (Excerpts) – 1990

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 (Illona Rodgers, Ken Catran). This extract from the first episode follows preparations for the trip down under, and introduces Vicky to the original Black Beauty.

Victoria loves horses, doesn't she?
– Step-mother Jenny Gordon Denning (Stacy Dorning)
