Forgotten series from the 70's
7 June 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I saw this series one time on the dutch television TROS, it was a good story about a boy, named Scott Hunter, of thirtheen years old who is looking for his missing father. The man disappeared after finding a goldmine somewhere in New Zealand, around 1860. Finally Scott finds his father after solving of some obstacles. After the end of this series in 1977, i have heard nothing more about Andrew Hawthorne, who played the title role. I think there are not many peoples who remembers him, even "Hunter's gold" is just a vague memory, which is typical for many forgotten series from the 70's so as "the lost islands", "against the wind" and others.
