The story takes place around 1925 and centres round the Hensman boys, Robin , John and Harold , who are spending their summer holiday away from their boarding school and living in the country house of their aunt Ellen. With romantic notions of living life in the forest as outlaws they take off for the woods of Brendon Chase where they must fend for themselves, fighting off the natural dangers of living life rough and occasionally foraging into town for food whilst avoiding the local villagers who have by now formed a search party for the errant adolescents. Also helping the search is the local vicar , the local policeman PS Bunting and intrepid reporter Monica Hurling .
The boys are not entirely alone the whole time and occasionally encounter some of the forests other residents such as Smokoe Joe, who shares his secrets of the forest with them enabling the children to survive through the summer until (by the last episode) the autumn, when they are finally reunited with their spinster aunt.Genre:
