Joining the 1980s boom of childrens adventure stories, Steel Riders follows a group of underdog kids embroiled in a mysterious robbery. The eight-part series was consolidated into these twin TV movies, which offer everything you'd expect from the genre — a BMX gang, cursed artefacts, a masked villain on a motorbike, and plenty of bass guitar lines to indicate trouble is afoot. Aided by a gang of BMX-riding boys, Sandra battles a mysterious criminal mastermind and his helmet-clad henchman The Spook. Writer Ken Catran has scripted many kids TV dramas, including Children of the Dog Star and horse tale Star Runner.
