I watched this when it played on British TV in 1977. I missed the final episode watching Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind in the cinema and never did find out what happened. I guess I need to get the DVD.

Finally, we now have this released on DVD and what a pleasure it is to relive the full story again. Watched it as a kid, but never knew just how good this actually was. Simple yet brilliant story, great characters and O'Halloran the policeman was just brilliantly done by Gabriel Prendergast.
Was the music a special arrangement for the series or is it from anywhere special? Great tune to accompany the series and remember the first bars playing and sitting down after school to watch this.
Great stuff TVNZ for finally giving us this DVD release and well worth the purchase!
Hunted around for so long to find this treasure and now have struck Gold.

This is a lost gem. I live in the U.K and fondly remember this being shown on BBC 1 back in the summer of 1983. It has a great musical introduction and ending. The drama was warmly received here in the UK and the storyline was great. I never missed an episode and have waited a long time for this to be released on DVD and now to be told it is on hold and may never be released. Please TVNZ hurry up and release this on DVD as there are I am sure a legion of fans out there waiting to relive the story again. I for one would cherish a copy of the complete story. Thanks for uploading this and can we have more until the DVD comes out. Pleaseeeeeee.

Wow! I'd forgotten SPTV's original logo! Living in Southland we didn't get SPTV until mid-1976, a year after the channel first went to air. I remember this show, and Gather Your Dreams. A golden age of kids' TV in NZ that started with The Games Affair in 1975.....
