The storyline followed wealthy Patricia Gregory as she ended her 14-year search in the South Pacific for her long lost daughter Joan. When Joan was one-year-old, the Gregory yacht was shipwrecked near the 30th parallel south. Lashed to a lifeboat, Joan was presumed lost by all but Patricia. In the opening episode, she receives a tip about a white girl living on a mysterious island populated by scientifically advanced people in the Pacific. After the reunion of mother and daughter, the program dramatized their subsequent adventures on the island which could submerge to escape detection. Lots of technological “marvels” are encountered as they get captured, escape, get captured, escape, etc. Great sound and a wonderful retrospective on what 1930’s people thought the future held in store for us as far as technology is concerned.
