I might have seen this Sam Groom Made-for-Television film once and a half in the early 1980s because it is split between two parts and the second time I've watched it was when I was eager to watch the whole length. Its generally melodramatic stuff and also as time moves on, its overlong at 3hrs 10mins in total about a couple of trippers stranded in an inactive cable car after it was struck by lightening. Seems pretty odd......eh....when the trippers and the cable car operators should have checked the weather forecast!!! On the other hand, the lightning strikes during daylight and its suddenly night time where most of the scenes were set. In the whole, the film is really poor for a lengthy two part drama with daft plots that descends severely and tediously into soap opera stuff with several of the trippers cry and bitch about other members of the travelling party or get flashbacks while Burr Debenning gets burnt... Yawn....until Sam Groom saves the day only just. Not recommended then and certainly not recommended today.
