Does anyone remember this?
It was on TV here in Norway in ... I'm not sure, but it was produced in 1984, apparently, so it can't have been that much later. Mid-eighties. :-) It was called Flammer over India in Norwegian. Again, I'm not sure exactly when it was on, so I can't say how old I was when I saw it, but I must have been about ten. I don't remember that much of the plot, I just mainly remember that I LOVED it like crazy. It captured my imagination, as they say. Totally. In recent years I have been thinking every now and then that I would like to see it again.
The other day I went out to dinner with some friends and friends of friends, and after some hot chocolates at a literally pretty cool cafe, we went shopping at VideoNova which was right across the street. And guess what I found. :-) It was at a really good price too, only 200 crowns ... for the whole series which is what, several hours. I had to buy it. :-)
Now I don't know whether I'll dare to watch it. What if it's horrible? I'll ruin a treasured childhood memory. :-) Take a look below. It's not quite up to current standards, is it. ;-) But on the other hand, Chris Lee ... ! :-D
Have I read the book, you say? No ... I'm a little ashamed to say I haven't. I think I actually have a copy of it - and have had it for probably like two years, which is why I'm ashamed :-) - but I've never gotten around to reading it. Because it's about ten thousand pages. But we'll see. :-)
