The father, an ex-military man, sees the 'handwriting on the wall' as to where his country's economy is headed. In an effort to prepare for this, he moves his family of wife, two sons and two daughters out of the city to a secluded old mansion -- a fortress, a castle, as it were. In a confidence he shares only with his youngest son, he acquires stores, goods and foodstuffs, for the tough times he sees coming.
This series was actually first broadcast in April 1980 and I have read that production was 1979-80. Isn't the IMDb "1979" claim rather misleading? It is leading to assertions by web skimmers that the show was BROADCAST in 1979! There seems to be an awful lot of odd stuff gong on. Series on which production began in 1969, but were first broadcast in 1970, are listed as "1970", but series on which production began in 1979, but were first broadcast in 1980, are listed as "1979". Is there some kind of bizarre, anti-80s bias going on at IMDb? Also, the actual episodes are dated 1980 - the studio "ident" at the end of each episode shows the year as being 1980! IMDb needs to decide whether its dates refer to the year production began or the date a show was broadcast because this is all very confusing and encourages a lot of misleading web info elsewhere.
