[aka: Robinson Crusoe] (Syndicated in the U.S., 1964) This series derived from a French production filmed in Germany in 1964 with a different music track. For the English-language version aired in the United States (in 1964) and in England (in 1965), a new music track with a totally different theme tune was created by the Italian composer Gian-Piero Reverberi who collaborated with Robert Mellin on the soundtrack. The haunting theme tune turned out to be quite memorable, and was "covered" by the pop-synthesizer group "The Art of Noise" in 1989. This made it more well-known outside of the original 1964 TV series.
