Unseen on television for many years, this is the definitive television version of Daniel Defoe’s classic adventure story of a young Englishman’s sole quest for survival on a desert island. Filmed extensively on location in the Canary Islands, the serial boasts feature film production values, a very distinctive Crusoe in the shape of Austrian actor Robert Hoffmann and a haunting and unforgettable music score.

Produced by Franco-London Films in 1964, The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe made its UK debut on BBC1 in 1965 and thereafter became a staple part of the school Summer holiday schedules before finally being exiled to a French film archive in 1982, where, incidentally, these last remaining prints of the English version were discovered.
