    Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (The): The Complete Series




    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.

    Lawks ! what we put up with all those years ago I must have seen this series three times as a wee boy and it still gives the heebie jeebies which must make it worth a watch the narration can drone a bit and the music is - ethnically challenging - as a bit of children's TV heritage it must rank along with The Singing Ringing Tree and Captain Pugwash as the guiltiest of all pleasures next to - ah well - never mind ay?
    So bad it's marvellous...
