Filmed in the most dangerous wastelands, the Kalahari Desert, "Lost in the Desert" is a story of suspense, conflict and incredible human courage as an 8-year-old boy and his dog are left to face this vast wasteland alone after an airplane crash, while an army of men and machines penetrate the desert searching for them. The film is based on true events and is sure to hold you spellbound! Written by
I saw this film as a double bill with 'The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad' back in 1974, with my father when I was growing up in Sutton Surrey. As an 8 year old it had an enduring impact on me. I then remember seeing it again in 1980 one Monday afternoon on TV - which confirms it was broadcast on British television at least once. I'm still searching for a copy on DVD which I believe is available now after all these years. It's a shame that this film of a boys survival & a fathers determination to find him has been largely forgotten now. It was powerful as a children's film, but certainly rises above a lot of the pointless movies made for children these days. I'm looking forward to finding a copy very soon. Regards
