The Chalet School Revisited was filmed during Elinor M. Brent-Dyer's birth centenary celebrations in 1994, and includes footage of the celebrations organised by Chalet fans in the UK, Guernsey and Austria; together with the story of Brent-Dyer's life narrated by Helen McClelland; excerpts from the books read by actress Kate O'Mara; and rare dustwrappers and illustrations from the Chalet School and La Rochelle series. You can find out more about the making of the film and read a script within the Virtual Worlds of Girls website.
Bettany Press customers on The Chalet School Revisited:
"I have enjoyed it very much indeed and it really brought the Chalet School alive. It is lovely to have and will always be a joy to look at."
"Excellent: professionally done and very interesting; especially for someone like me, who did not attend the centenary events and has never seen any of the locations from the books."
