Only worth it for the locations.

I am inserting reviews for films I've seen that lack one, they all deserve a review, even this... Made for the CFF (Children's Film Foundation) this is a very simple tale, set mostly along the Regents canal in London it's the tale of a group of children with use of their own canal barge who hope to rescue the world's only Yeti that has been stolen from the zoo, the keeper being the father of one of the kids, the Yeti is rather ridiculous, being orange and having a marsupial pouch, the acting is no better from the adults than the kids, it may amuse young kids, otherwise the main point of interest, is that there is extensive footage of the Regents canal before all the recent redevelopment, overall poor. This must be fairly obscure, at date of review Apr 2014 it is still to register 5 votes.
