People really remember this?
27 July 2008 | by divechic2See all my reviews

I LOVED this show, i have been asking people for years if anyone ever saw it. I have been working in several different countries, with people from all over the world and i always asked if anyone ever saw this 'crazy show with a load of kids and a professor in a flying bus looking for golden salamanders' and everyone (apart from my sister and one Australian girl) actually thought i was mad! I am delighted to hear that it was not just a strange dream that i made up in my head! I remember that there was one child who had red hair and i remember him (pretty sure it was a him) running through a field. I would LOVE it if it was available on DVD. I would buy it just to prove to people that i never lost my mind!
