Storyline

A Hurricane nearly sinks the "United World", a ship holding 40 teenagers from all around the world. 35 flee the ship on time - 5 are left behind, and end up on 2 islands unknown to the outside world, inhabited by people who got there under similar circumstances 200 years ago. The islands are ruled by a supposedly 200 year old immortal tyrant called "The Que", who would very much like to see them dead, so while running for their lives they make friends among the locals, even local very close to the Que. Written by Ran Zvi Goldstein <rzg@netvision.net.il>

There once was a wealthy man who had a wonderful idea...

This show made it to the UK as well. I've not seen it since 1979 and yet that theme song is imbedded in my brain forever! This is the best kids tv show to have come out of Australia; way better than Skippy! A great premise, teen heroes that aren't too annoying, great villains and genuine excitement in each episode. It was also very well filmed in exotic locations. My regret is that it only lasted one series; we were left hanging in suspense as to what was going to happen. Maybe a remake is in order?
