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.

The Lost Islands To Be released On DVD
31 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The entire series of The Lost Islands is being released on DVD by a French company and will be available April 2005, cant wait. I remember watching this highly adventurous series when I was very young. It combines excitement, adventure with an atmosphere of mystery around the entire show. My favorite episode would have to be one of the last when the youngsters happen upon an old amphibious army vehicle (army Duc), restore it and eventually use it to free the villagers and themselves from the terror of the mighty "Q". It will be great to finally see this classic piece of Australian television history that was made for children but I bet many adults were addicted to it as well. If only more children's television programs were being made like this today.
