In Treasure, a pair of crooks Vic and Derek turn up looking for a secret source of valuable mineral deposits that are possibly in the park. They are posing as ecologists and rather unwisely decide to stay with old farmer Elijah instead of the Jackson’s thinking that they would be less inconspicuous there. They haven’t counted on just how nosy old Elijah is though!
The most lightweight episode so far and the first in the series not to be written by Brian Finch.
