  • Brilliant and sadly forgotten.

    I remember this series playing on NZ Television on Sunday nights. I don't know exactly why but it seems to have been a trend in the 80's for British TV shows to be recycled or rejuvenated for a 'down under' series. (Worzel Gummidge, Black Beauty and others received the same treatment).



    It's a long time ago but I recall it being a fantastic surprise to see Jack the Smuggler transported to New Zealand and the South Pacific. I particularly remember the show's depiction of British colonialism as Jack escaped into the New Zealand bush and befriended a Maori chief.



    Damn shame this wasn't broadcast elsewhere and even sadder it hasn't cropped up on the net.moreless
