THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
on 24 March 2016
Absolutely beautiful !
TV doesn't get more innocent than this and therefore it would be next to impossible to make a series like this today - full of humble stories of decent people living together in harmony with each other and their natural surroundings.
The cast is nothing short of faultless.
Led by gentle spirit Dan Haggerty - who sadly passed away recently - a wonderful actor who I first saw as part of the real-life hippie commune that Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper visit in Easy Rider. Strongly supported by Denver Pyle as the narrator - who's given much more to play here than he was on The Dukes of Hazzard - and Don Shanks - a real-life Native American playing a Native American which was unheard of in tv at that time !
Plus of course big cuddly softy Ben the Bear.
Add to all of this Tom Pace's heartbreakingly moving theme song that opens and closes each episode and you have a tv series that is just about perfect on every level - and I for one couldn't be happier that it has FINALLY made its way onto region 2 dvd at last !
