Night of the Red Hunter - Telefeature

Television (Full Length) – 1989

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 found it, I lost it ... and I’ll find it again!
– The gnomic beach rambler Ish Murdie (Bruno Lawrence) to Peter (Toby Laing) while holding a strange golden pendant.
