A full-cast dramatisation of one of the most famous adventure stories of all time, starring Roy Marsden as Robinson Crusoe.
Young Robinson Crusoe has a burning ambition to be a sailor. Paying no attention to his parents' warnings he runs away to sea to embark on an extraordinary series of adventures: struggles with Barbary pirates, a shipwreck and the extraordinary meeting with Man Friday . . . The older Robinson Crusoe (Marsden) looks back on a life of recklessness, daring and adventure - and the survival of twenty-eight years, two months and nineteen days on a desert island.
Based on the real life adventures of Alexander Selkirk, son of a Scottish shoe-maker, 'Robinson Crusoe' was one of the very first adventure stories to be published in English literature, in 1719.
