Film Description

Bafta-winning TV adaptation of the classic children's novel by Clive King, about a young boy who discovers a caveman living at the bottom of a nearby quarry.

Barney (Thomas Sangster) is a shy 10 year-old who is spending the summer holidays with his grandparents. One day, while out walking, he is chased by the village bullies and tumbles down an overgrown quarry. There, on the quarry floor, he encounters an apparently humanoid figure with thick shaggy hair and two bright eyes. This creature turns out to be Stig (Robert Tannion), a caveman who is hundreds of thousands of years old. Gradually he and Barney learn to communicate with other. Together they forage through the rubbish dump at the bottom of the quarry, using the things the villagers throw away to improve Stig's cave. So begins a very special friendship in a tale which has charmed children and adults alike ever since it was first published in 1963.
