The Adventurer (AU)

Jack Vincent, an aristocrat and former british naval captain forced by circumstances to become a smuggler, is caught and transported on the HMS Success to a penal colony on Norfolk Island, off the New Zealand coast. Unhappily for Vincent, the ship’s captain is none other than his brother-in-law, Lt. Harry Anderson. The two men have quarrelled violently in the past over Anderson’s treatment of Vincent’s sister and now Anderson subjects him to particularly harsh and humiliating treatment.

Vincent stages a successful mutiny, casting Anderson and those loyal to him adrift, and plans to sail to America. When the Success is shipwrecked, Vincent is one of three survivors; but Anderson also survives the storm, and vows to pursue Vincent until he sees him hanged at Execution Dock. So begins a fight for survival for Vincent and his crew, complete with hostile natives, unscrupulous sea-traders, crazed prophets and buried treasure...

Oliver Tobias (Arthur of the Britons) plays Jack Vincent in this popular sequel to Smuggler. Filmed on location in New Zealand, Adventurer features breathtaking natural scenery, highly authentic sets and thrilling scenes and scripts from award-winning creator Richard 'Kip' Carpenter (Adventures of Black Beauty, Catweazle, The Ghosts of Motley Hall, Dick Turpin, Smuggler, Robin of Sherwood). This complete series was originally screened in 1987.
