A Hurricane nearly sinks the "United World", a ship holding 40 teenagers from all around the world. 35 flee the ship on time - 5 are left behind, and end up on 2 islands unknown to the outside world, inhabited by people who got there under similar circumstances 200 years ago. The islands are ruled by a supposedly 200 year old immortal tyrant called "The Que", who would very much like to see them dead, so while running for their lives they make friends among the locals, even local very close to the Que.

I have hoped all these last years to see The lost Islands, again. I was so excited when I saw the DVD in a big famous shop in Paris. The adventures of the five children who find themselves in an island where are living people like 200 years ago are still impassioning. Like another commentator, my only regret is that it is obvious that a second season was previous and not shoot. I could not find any comment about the film, The Lost Islands (with the same cast), that was released in Australia in 1975. Does anyone know something about it ? I would be so pleased to see it as well. Anyway thanks to the Australian channel who produced this wonder and to the French DVD distributor for having bought the rights of it and made The Lost Islands not lost anymore. Merci
