    Region 2 DVD (290 minutes) �11-97p amazon.co.uk



    The ZDF TV series, directed by Sigi Rothemund, was based on the novel by Leon Garfield.



    Patrick Bach impresses as a 13-year-old boy found on the steps of Holborn Catholic Church and sent to an orphanage in Bristol.



    Jack runs away and joins the crew of the "Charming Molly". Captain Sharingham and twin brother Lord Sharingham, a judge, are both played by Matthias Habich.



    The journey features slavery, swamps, ship-wrecks and hidden treasure, while Jack is determined to find out about his family.



    The dubbing and some fight scenes are unconvincing, but the performances and storylines can still keep today's children engrossed.



    The locations including New Zealand, the Cook Islands and Croatia, are superb - as is the music composed by Christian Bruhn.

    My other favourite pirate film is A High Wind in Jamaica. Honourable mentions must go to all those Errol Flynn pirate films and the under-rated Cutthroat Island.

    Treasure Island (1990) with Charlton Heston is good romp. Great cameos by Christopher Lee and Oliver Reed too.

    billy, In addition to JACK HOLBORN, you might find THE BUCCANEERS,

    with Robert Shaw as Captain Dan Tempest, good value for money.



    The Complete Series, Region 1, is not expensive.

    Region 2 is �19.95p from Network.

    Well, someone had to say it,,,



    Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl is absolutely the best pirate movie ever made, That's not to say Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is the best portrayal in film but he's very close to it. All in all it's one of those rare films that gets better the more times you see it. It's just a shame they made the 2 less appealing sequels.



    This mobie has everything it should have. Action, adventure, romance, comedy and some of the best one liners of the 21st century so far.



    "Jack Sparrow, you're the worst pirate I've ever heard of.



    Yeah, but you have heard of me."







    I also really enjoyed The Goonies and the Disneycartoon Peter Pan
