Trivia

Oddly, the episodes of this show were neither 30 minutes nor 60 minutes but were in fact 45 minutes long. This and another show that also ran 45 minutes made up an hour and a half block on the ABC Network in 1969. This would not be unique in Great Britain nor some other European countries but highly unusual for American network television. See more »

A Social Revolution - of sorts
5 September 2004 | by GypsybelleSee all my reviews

I really loved this series when it was on from 1969 - 1970. I was a teenager at the time and it really appealed to most of my friends back then.

Interesting concept for a group of young college age kids on a plane that crashes in the Pacific. They are survivors and try their best to form an organized society when they realize they might not be rescued. They ultimately realized what life is like as an adult. I have hunted for this for a long time, and I had forgotten the title. It's been over 30 years and the theme of this short lived series still stuck in my mind. I finally remembered Tiffany Bollings name as one of the stars, so I was able to find the title finally. Rod Serling and others involved with this show could have done so much more with it. I recommend watching it, if it is ever brought back into syndication as old shows sometimes are. I sadly doubt that anyone would put a series this short onto video or DVD, but I'd watch it again if they did.
