The now legendary, almost mythical character of Indiana Jones once had a childhood. Every episode starts out with the elderly man that he is in the 1990's getting into a specific situation where he has to tell a story from his past. The stories go back to when he was ten years old and on a world tour with his father, and to his late-teens when he fought in World War I. Written by

Filmed in twenty-three different countries, traveling over one hundred sixty-five thousand miles (aproximately six times around the world). Cast and crew shot for one hundred fifty-two weeks, making this the longest location shoot in history at that time. The series featured over fifteen hundred speaking parts, fifty thousand extras, for whom over one hundred twenty thousand meals were served. Enough 16-millimeter film was shot, to go from New York City to Phoenix. See more »

It was a ratings flop but that wasn't George Lucas' fault: network t.v. is too small a format for the life of Indiana Jones (even if he is fictional!)
Among other places, young Indy travels to Egypt, Dublin during the Easter Uprising and eastern Africa in World War I. He meets up with historical personages like young, fey Mid-East scholar T.E. Lawrence, more Irish writers and rebels than I can recall here, General Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck and his friend, Karen Blixen (a.k.a. Isak Denisen). And, as the phrase goes, that ain't all!
About only ten episodes were made but each of them is really a cinematic production in its own right, light-years better than your typical movie-of-the-week or mini-series.
