A schoolboy aims to avert a dastardly plan to smuggle antiques out of the country in this rousing kids’ crime yarn.

Children's 1976 60 mins

Director: David Eady

Overview

In this rousing kids’ crime yarn, Bernard Cribbins is 'Pyramid', a dastardly master-of-disguise who plans to smuggle an ancient Egyptian mummy out of the country. When young Jeff (Graham Fletcher-Cook) discovers the plan, a dangerous chase via South London's Victoria Station and Clapham Station ensues.

With fantastic use of London locations, exciting train-set sequences and footage of the real night ferry that ran between London and Paris until its closure in 1980, this is one of the more memorable adventures from the much-loved Children’s Film Foundation.
