Swallows Amazons Godine Storyteller Ransome When BBC Films announced it was to remake Swallows and Amazons, it stressed that the production would stay true to Arthur Ransome’s classic. At least as far as political correctness would allow. Thepluckiest of the Walker childrenhas been renamed after itwas decided a character calledTitty would offend the easily offended, and so the characterhas been renamedTatty.Ransome based the characters on a real-life family, the Altounyans. One of their number, Mavis, was nicknamed Titty after the Joseph Jacobs’ children’s story Titty Mouse and Tatty Mouse.

Christine Langan, head of BBC Films, alluded to the ludicrous political correctness and commented that the film harks back to a pre-health and safety generation .

The film will be released next year.
