Storyline

Father Craig Dunleavy leads a band of terrorists who hijack a cruise ship in the French Atlantic and demand a $70 million ransom. Harold Columbine is our main hero, as the teleplay spends as much time focusing on the problems and love affairs of individual passengers as it does on the hijacking itself. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Amateur Radio Saves The Day!
26 November 2002 | by (Schenectady, NY USA) – See all my reviews

A pretty good mini-series (even before anybody knew what a mini-series was) with lots of twists and turns. Pretty involving storyline based on the book of the same name. Just wish it was available on video, but you might pick it up on TBS some day.

Only bad thing was the total unbelievability of two 10 year old kids with amateur extra class licenses and enough equipment to make any ham salivate.
