Storyline

Desmond Jordan is an archaeologist who found an old parchment in which, the history of the Talking Mountain that is guarded by the guardian of an ancient and sought-after treasure hidden somewhere in the Sahara desert, was mentioned. After Desmond saves Anthea, a mysterious woman warrior, the two are hunted down by evil Lieutenant Ryker and his deserter legionaries, as well as El Hallem - a dangerous and infamous bandit of the desert, and the Khalif of Timbuktu who also wants the treasure of the mountain for himself. While Khalif orders his guards to find and capture Jordan, Philip, Jordan's son, travels from London to Morocco looking for his father who is in search of the location of the Talking Mountain, attracted by the mystery that it hides.

wonderful
8 April 2002 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Wow. I saw this when it was aired for the first time on an Austrian or German TV-Channel. I was still a child then, and I couldn't get it out of my head. This is a very well done mini-serial with a very good plot, and it would deserve a DVD release. If you can get the soundtrack album released on CD by RCA, get it! The music is so wonderful and brought back so many memories...
