    Toot, toot! It's a little known made up fact that current F1 champion Sebastian Vettel was first inspired to become a racing driver by watching Toad in a TV adaptation of this well known popular children's tale.

    So we are sure him and everyone else will be thrilled with the news that FremantleMedia Home Entertainment are releasing The Wind in the Willows: The Original Movie on both DVD and Blu-ray, along with The Wind in the Willows: The Complete Collection on DVD, this coming 28th October.

    Synopsis and clip follow...

    First published in 1908, Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in The Willows has become one of best loved books of all time, enchanting generations of children and adults alike.

    The story is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames Valley. Brought to the screen by award winning animation team Cosgrove Hall, The Wind in The Willows movie introduces us, for the first time, to our four intrepid animal friends.

    Toad decides that motor cars are the way only way to travel, however his driving skills don’t match up to his enthusiasm. Our countryside friends come to his rescue and try to help him stay on the right side of the road, and the law, in this exciting adventure.
