Flambards was a 13-episode television series broadcast in the United Kingdom in 1979 and in the United States in 1980. The series was based on the first three Flambards novels of English author K. M. Peyton. Peyton subsequently wrote her fourth Flambards book when approached by a group interested in filming a sequel to the series. However, the sequel series failed to find a buyer and so never was filmed.
