Nearly There

[ This app is no longer available for download ]

NEARLY THERE is a tale of two horses, Budley and Bishop, who go on an exciting journey; meeting mysterious strangers; overcoming obstacles and undergoing zany trials. Along the way, they encounter other animals all unhappy with their lot. Once freed from human captivity, these friends embark upon a quest for fulfillment; seemingly defenceless they thrive in the face of adversity.

On their meanderings, music and song guides them towards their goal.
On the roadside a naked chicken appears and says: Can you help me find my feathers?
Bishop a thoroughbred bay mare asserted to her: Of course, come with us!
And so the journey begins… on the road to NEARLY THERE!

With its exquisite drawings, catchy tunes, exciting, and innovative narration, NEARLY THERE takes you on an unforgettable journey. This is a story for the child in all of us.

Developed from the original book by Johanna Connor and Gabrielle Byrne, the story is narrated by Colin Vearcombe aka Black; with character voices by Colin Vearncombe and Maurice Seezer and accompanied by the perfect song - On the Road to Nearly There - by Fergus O'Farrell of Interference and Maurice Seezer, composer and performer.
