    Hi everybody,

    Thanks to IMDB, all the details about the show are here : Primus

    Primus was never as successful as Mike Nelson, but I did very much enjoy it as a kid. It hooked me on scuba-diving, as JYC's Odyssey did as well.

    I'm dying to watch it once more, but although I've been ransacking the web, it seems the show was never set on tape nor DVD, nor could find much about it.

    Has anyone any bright idea or better knowledge than I ?

    Thanks a lot anyway.

    I loved this series as a kid, and when I started surfing the internet in the 90's it was one of the first searches I made - but nothing! The series is probably collecting dust in Ivan Tor's closet. Too bad his kids don't dust them off and transfer them to Blu-ray. Robert Brown, the actor who played Primus, is apparently still alive according to Wikipedia (91 years old). Does anyone on Scubaboard know him and can ask?

    I love the toys.... he has a sub, sea plane, scooters and drives a 71 ‘vette. Everything I ever wanted (at least until puberty....).

    Abnfrog that would be great! The VHS jacket may list the distributor (if still in existence). I noticed that Daktari, another Ivan Tors series, was released by Warner Archive Collection a few years back, so maybe they have the rights to Primus too?

    Let the Seahunt for Primus continue!

    JMBL, good pickup. Watching the clip posted by CT-Rich, it would appear that this is off a VHS tape and converted to DVD. It would be interesting when abnfrog finds his VHS, he can confirm if it contains this same episode. It may be that only one VHS with four episodes was ever released.
