This box set contains both series one and two of the BBC's adaptation of the classic Mary Norton children's books.
Series 1 - Welcome to the world of The Borrowers, a family of tiny people who live under the floorboards in a big old house. Pod, Honily and their daughter Arriety live happily in a home furnished with cotton reels and safety pins. Where postage stamps are used for paintings and matchboxes for chests of drawers. Everything they have is borrowed from the 'human beans' who don't even know that they exist. That is until the fateful day when Arrietty makes friends with 'the boy' George.
Series 2 - In the second series of The Borrowers, Arrietty Clock and her parents Pod and Homily find living with Homily's sister Lupy rather a strain. With the return of cousins Ditchley and Ilrick,the Clock family decide to move, and are off on their travels once again. We meet up with Arrietty's friend Spiller again as he helps them out on their adventures. Can they survive the cruel tricks set by Ditchley and Ilrick, and with the help of their 'human bean' friend George manage to avoid capture by that wicked giant Mrs Driver?
