Synopsis by Hal Erickson
An Australian-German co-production, Golden Soak was set in Australia in the late 19th century. On the outs in his native England, mining engineer Alex Hamilton (Ray Barrett) headed "Down Under" to start life all over again. The plot thickened when Alex got mixed up with an abandoned and supposedly "tapped out" gold mine. Adapted from the novel by Hammond Innes, Golden Soak was telecast in six 60-minute episodes by Australia's ABC network in 1979.
