Storyline

Retired Australia soldier Griffin, who devoted his old age to setting up a diamond mine in a crackpot Southern African state, was murdered before it became profitable. His daughter Toby hires the A-team to get it running and warns they'll be attacked too by local tycoon Jonathan Fletcher's henchmen and just about everybody has been bought by Fletcher, resulting in an effective embargo. Face and Murdock masquerade as officials to scam supplies. They are all terribly exposed carrying a cargo of explosives to the mine, even after overpowering a pair of goons. Written by KGF Vissers

Diamonds 'n Dust
13 January 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The first episode of the second season and they go on location to Africa, well the Hollywood backlot with documentary footage of safari animals inserted.

The daughter of a murdered Australian diamond miner in South Africa hires The A Team to take on a local thug and his henchmen.

Murdock has fun pretending to be some officious British jobsworth. Hannibal tries on a few more disguises and Face turns on the charm by trying to woo the distraught daughter. As for the rest, the team improvises with the equipment they have and recall how they got away from some ambush back in 'nam.

Still in apartheid era South Africa no racial remark was made to BA, then again who would!
