Children Of The Dog Star (TV Mini-series)


New Zealand 1984, 144 minutes
Genres: Television, Family, Science Fiction / Invaders


Aroview: Beloved New Zealand sci-fi series following 12-year-old Gretchen (Dunn) who discovers a link to an extra-extraterrestrial life via an old weathervane she discovers while staying at her uncle's farm.

Pitched as a family show, this chilled the bones of young kids the country over with a recognizable Kiwi sensibility mixed with the omnipresent threat of the alien unknown.Writer Ken Catran also penned the equally disquieting Maurice Gee adaptation UNDER THE MOUNTAIN. Six episodes.
