On arriving at Tuckers Gully Scott finds that his father's colleague has been found murdered. Scott's father, whom no one has seen for some weeks, is the prime suspect and there is a price on his head.

Forgotten series from the 70's
7 June 2006 | by ToscaanSee 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.
