All thirteen episodes of the classic children's serial in a four-volume box set. In episode one he starts his search for sustenance on the island, while in the second episode he builds a tree shelter. In the third episode the wreckage of his ship washes ashore so he sets about salvaging anything that he might be able to use. While he searches he makes a new friend - Dick the dog. In episode four, the shipwrecked Crusoe discovers valuable items and treasure aboard the wreck of the Esmerelda, and finds a cave which he turns into a new home. In the next episode he attempts, somewhat unsuccessfully, to make some furniture for his new abode, and in the sixth episode his shelter burns down. In episode seven, Robinson attempts to construct a canoe to escape from the island. episode eight sees him developing his pottery, breadmaking and basket weaving skills, while in episode nine he holds a banquet to celebrate the third anniversary of his arrival. Finally, in episode ten Robinson has to defend his island paradise against cannibals, rescuing one of their prisoners and naming him 'Friday'. In episode eleven, Robinson attempts to make Friday into his manservant, with little success. Episode twelve sees Friday return after Robinson's thoughtlessness drove him away, and in episode thirteen Robinson and Friday make their escape from the island. Also included is the French language version of episode one.

Robinson crusoe is so atmospheric it can be enjoyed with pop corn on a Saturday morning or curled up very late at night when boredom threatens to engulf you.
Like many others, I have vivid memories of watching this when I was young, probably during its earliest showings in the 60s. I mean really vivid memories, probably the most vivid and detailed of any early TV that I can recall. Why is this?
Suffering from one of my usual periodic bouts of incurable nostalgia, I was keen both to find out, and also just to see this series again. I was very happy to find this on DVD, and it arrived this morning. I have just watched the first episode.
I don't think it would be giving away too much to say that it starts with a shipwreck! I also don't think it would be unfair to say that by today's standards, and possibly even the standards of its day too, this opening is pretty dire. Models which are blatantly models, bad acting, bad stunts, badly cut in occasional stock footage from other old B&W shipwreck/storm film scenes. As he comes ashore, the terribly dubbed soundtrack has, as the effect of the surf washing over him, what sounds like someone lazily swishing a few fingers around in an inch of water in a wash basin.
I was fast reaching the conclusion that this would have been a childhood memory better left just as that rather than revisited. But then, as he is lying on the beach clutching at the sand, the reason why this programme was and is so captivating and memorable becomes crystal clear. The music, curiously absent up to this point apart from the opening credits, starts.
The location (the Canaries I believe) is beautiful, and the photography of it, unlike the opening storm scenes, is actually stunning and a work of art in itself. But the real power is in the music.
Taken simply in its own right, it is a haunting and unforgettable melody.Read more ›
As a boy I loved it - the story telling, the beautiful, evocative music and the acting. Nearly forty years on, I still have the same warmth for this beautiful series. I now appreciate the music all the more and the way it is so well filmed, with the daring camera angles/positions and lovely scenes and scenery.
Often revisitng something from your childhood can be dangerous because your perspective on the world changes as you age, but for me, none of the magic has been lost.
