"You didn't tell us your surname was 'Nuts', Hazel!"

The Goodies are nearly broke and freezing to death in their office. Then a sexy young woman named Hazel hires the lads to search for her explorer father, who went missing twenty years ago whilst searching for the lost tribe of the Orinoco. Using his diary, they recreate his journey step for step - and find themselves in Sevenoaks, Kent...

Disappointing episode, boasting few film sequences. Bridget Armstrong would later play one of Patrick Cargill's ex-spouses in 'The Many Wives Of Patrick', whilst Roy Kinnear was famous thanks to 'That Was The Week That Was', 'Till Death Us Do Part', and many other shows. His character

  • Professor Nuts - has lived with the tribe for so long because they
are the only people left in the world who laugh at his jokes! The depiction of black people as grunting savages probably wouldn't go down well today, but attempting to impose today's standards on the past is totally pointless. You've just got to see it in the context of its time period.

Funniest moment - Graeme's impersonation of Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet, here renamed 'The Galloping Cannibal'!
