In the far off land of Borovia - where dragons are fierce, witches are wicked, scientists are insane, and television is in black & white - stands Castle Big, home of The Big Knights. Brothers Sir Boris (the finest swordsman in the world), Sir Morris (the most enthusiastic) and their noble pets (Sir Horace the Dog and Sir Doris the Hamster) right wrongs and rescue princesses - and woe betide anything that gets in their way! Originally a BBC TV series of 13 short films by the award-winning animators who are now best known for Peppa Pig, this feature-length programme is a treat for all ages that shares Peppa Pig's distinctive visual flair and laugh-out-loud wit.
