Does this bring back any memories for anyone??

jesus - did that programme actually have a beginning or an end? I just remember it seemingly going on forever and ever. There must have been 1000s of episodes.

C. tells me that the theme tune also has a french version with totally different lyrics to the same tune, so it was a pan-european thing.

All I really remember is Inca gold and flying golden condors.

I was a bit naughty a couple of years ago and downloaded the whole series via bit-torrent.

Still haven't watched them!

I can't say as I've ever seen this particular show... But, then again, being that I live in the Americas, I've grown up with literal cities of gold, with rivers of purest honey and streets paved in pearl.

The programme probably made as much sense then as Dranonball Z and Pokemon do today.

Stef said...

OMG! I think I watched that entire series (I had no life at that age) and I seem to remember it did have a proper begining and end but I'll be buggered if I can remember what they were!

It did go on for ever. Don't think I'd ever watch it again though even if I had all the torrents.

No, but the intro was very Star Trek.

Ginny said...

Funny, I thought it very Star Trekkie too (the intro). Maybe it's the William Shatneresque voice.
I've never heard or seen that series either.

Stef said...

Ooh, Jo Whiley is just talking about Mysterious Cities of Gold on Radio 1. Now there's a coincidence!

adem said...

Stef - I just heard that too as I was in the car and had the radio on.

So yes it did have an ending, and they did find the Cities of Gold....but not a completely happy ending...with more shenanigans going on.

Do you think the person who rang up had been looking at my blog?...no
