In an interview published in 'Fantasy Image' # 1 (1984), producer Richard Bates reveals that one of the young male leads tore the tendons in one of his knees during filming, and ended up being doubled in long shots by a young lady who worked on the production as a caterer. However, Bates does not reveal which of the actors it was. In issue 3 of the same magazine (published June 1985) actor Jim Baker is interviewed and mentions that it was he who hurt his knee on location and had to be doubled, but does not mentioned his stand-in was female.

It's been a long time since I saw the first of the two installments of this "video series." At the moment, I'm re-reading the books for the third time - this time with my 9-year old daughter, who is riveted to the story.
Whether you track down these films or not, do yourself a favor and read the trilogy by John Christopher. Simply some of the finest sci-fi work ever written, IMHO.
