This television series was a spin-off from the earlier Associated-Rediffusion series called Crane (1963). The character of Orlando was the sidekick of the English smuggler Richard Crane, played by Patrick Allen. See more »

Children's B&W TV half hour program
From what I can remember the character Orlando played by Sam Kydd was a bit of a scoundrel made good, after all this was a kids TV program. The main feature that I can remember was that Orlando has an amphibious car, probably one of the first in the UK. This car was featured in a few of the episodes. The episodes tended to feature children in the action and Orlando resided in a Boat Yard in the UK where he didn't seem to do very much apart from get into scrapes. I understand the character of Orlando was featured in an earlier TV program (Crain). All in all a delightful TV program which filled the boredom between the end of school and tea time..
