Synopsis

This sci-fi telefeature for kids follows the adventures of runaways Peter (Toby Laing) and Maggie (Toni Driscoll), who meet when Maggie’s attempt to get Picnic bars on a five finger discount go awry and "rich brat" Peter is on the lam on a 10-speed. After falling into a grave of golden light at a farm cemetery, they wake up in the house of the strange Piper family. Laing is now trumpeter for Fat Freddys Drop, and a young Kerry Fox appears briefly as a policewoman in the opening. Scripted by veteran Ken Catran, the telefeature was re-cut from a four-part series.

I have been trying to remember what this series was called for years now, and a search on Google would always be fruitless. It would be so good if New Zealand were still making entertaining TV series such as this instead the drivel that kids have no option but to watch today. I remember being devastated as a kid when the funding was taken away from projects like this to focus on Shortland Street. That said, it must have worked as Shortland Street is still going strong after all of these years. End.

I've been searching for this show for years, I had fond memories of it from childhood! Please release the DVD, Bluray or digital download with higher quality!
