Next best is £39.98 @ Amazon. Excellent reviews..

Its taken far too long for one of the finest childrens television programmes of the 1980s to make its journey to DVD, but thanks to this superb six-disc set, all 39 episodes of The Mysterious Cities Of Gold are finally available. And time has been very kind to it.

DVD Description
In the year 1532, a Spanish orphan named Esteban joins a party of Spaniards in their search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in the New World, hoping to find his father. He is joined on his quest by Zia, an Incan girl, and Tao, the last descendant of the sunken empire of Mu ("Hiva" in the English dub). The series is a mix of ancient South American history, archaeology, and science fiction. Esteban, Zia, and Tao encounter the Mayans, Inca, and Olmecs during their journey. The characters discover many lost technological wonders of the Mu Empire, including a solar powered ship (the Solaris) and The Golden Condor, a huge solar-powered would-be ornithopter (mechanical bird), capable of traveling considerable distances under the sun's power alone. They are constantly pursued by antagonists Gomez and Gaspard, who are also in search of the Cities of Gold. It is the 16th century. From all over Europe great ships sale west to conquer the New World, the Americas. These men eager to seek their fortune, to find new adventures in new lands. They long to cross uncharted seas and discover unknown countries. To find secret gold on a mountain trail high in the Andes. They dream of following the path of the setting sun that leads to Eldorado, and the Mysterious Cities Of Gold.

Great find! I've been wanting to buy this since it was released last year. Looks like HMV are the first to lower their price. Just placed an order... :-D
#4
Great price, this has stubbornly refused to come down in price since it's release. Great spot, have some heat and rep.
#5
great news! i didnt even know this was out, i have some rubbish vhs versions.

must get!
#6
what a series!!!

I hope I'm not dissapointed when I watch it agian - programmes always seem better than they are when you're a kid!
#7
I have been looking at getting this for sometime, so thank you for letting us know about it at such a great price (I hope they honor it). I can still remember Philip Schofield singing along to the theme tune (which is included as an extra) and the comments about the reversed clouds in the opening sequence. A great cartoon that is actually educational as well as fun, not that I noticed this at the time! I am sure this will turn in to an 80's nostalgia thread! :p

Nice, voted hot!

Anyone feeling flush? I don't have the money for it :-(

Only 39 episodes, it seemed to go on forever!!!

The animation on the trailer looks really good for an 80`s cartoon. I might give it a go. I only vaugely remember from first time around!

well for kids 39 weekly episodes, that is forever. and even in real time its almost 10 months.

i think HMV are the first to reduce as it was an exclusive to them so they have had it longer. i recall it was originally to come with a medallion but that was pulled.

still, its never been cheaper and ive been itching to buy it for a year but never wanted to pay the £35+ everywhere. this will definately do.
#12
good news, there is a movie version coming out this year.

DEFN HOT! This cartoon has aged well..the themes involved are mixed up with real facts, legends and myths... a bit of world history in it well..ending was sad.
#14
Superb find.

I watched this as a nipper and would love to show it to my little girl.
#15
Does anyone know what soundtracks are on this boxset? I'd prefer having the French soundtrack.

#16
I watched the whole series on VHS a few years ago, and its just as awesome as you remember. Great deal on the DVDs.
#17

#18

#19
I've downloaded a rip of all the episodes but I'm still tempted to get this! That's how much I love the series. It's as good now as it was then.
#20

AWESOME! Does anyone else remember when the BBC kids tv presenter (I think it was Andy Crane at the time) got everyone to send in for a lyrics sheet so we could all sing along with the theme tune!!! Those were the days!

That is a fantastic price for the HMV exclusive(think the packaging is bigger and better, few other bits and bobs aswell). Loads got this when it was nearer £40.

Lovely set. Hott.

EDIT: just beware that the animation looks dated up against how you remember it tho :)
#26
I bought this set instore when it came out for £42.

Even though it's now £18, I dont feel bad at all, I reckon I've had every pennys worth of my £42.

It's a really nice set... the producers took a lot of time and effort over bringing together a huge stack of extras and bonuses.

Made my girlfriend and I feel like little kids again when we watched it - "I remember this bit!!!!"
#27
hot find thanks
#28
This was one of the best kids cartoons when i was younger...ordered...can't wait to see it again!!

Also, i'm not being picky but thought i'd point out quidco for HMV is only 5%. Means a massive difference of nearly 40p!!:p

Eh? I always thought Ulysses was shown on Channel 4? Back to back with Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors :? Maybe the BBC had it first...

Hot deal, just shown the wife the intro on youtube and she wasn't impressed!

Anyone know what the 80's kids TV show was with the red spaceships that joined together and made a big robot thing? (Not Power Rangers).

EDIT: Found the programme, it was called Star Fleet.
#38
Awesome! Must buy,,,must buy....must buy....
