In 1911 Hamburg, Germany, a geography teacher learns his son helped three adventurers who got lost in the desert, and nearly died… In flashback… explorers Gregory Morton (as Einar Hansen), Eddie Firestone (as Gus), and Bert Convy (as Andersson) lose their guide, suffer during a sandstorm, and argue over a meager food and water supplies. After ten days, they are running dry and growing weak. Then, they meet fellow explorer Jeremy Slate (as Eric Borgner), who knows the geography of the desert well. If you know this television series well, you'll have most of the story figured out… in that respect, it's not uncommon.

**** The Explorer (3/15/60) John Newland ~ Gregory Morton, Eddie Firestone, Jeremy Slate, Bert Convy
