Jackson Pace: The Great Years (ITV Sitcom, Keith Allen)



Jackson Pace The Great Years ITV Daniel Peacock Keith Allen Josie Lawrence

Children’s comedy adventure series Jackson Pace: The Great Years detailed the exploits of the Indiana Jonesish explorer Jackson Pace (Keith Allen). Pace is on a quest to discover the treasure of ‘Kinard’- to do so he needed to find three special keystones that would give him access to a temple in the deepest part of the jungle of Ja Ja Bar (or as it turns the Granada TV studios). Also out to get the treasure was the evil Daken (Nic D’Avirro).

The six parter was written by actor Daniel Peacock (he also appeared) and was originally intended for an evening audience hence joke names like Kinard. The cast was excellent with a role for Josie Lawrence (as Ryveeta Tusk) and the legendary Hugh Paddick as Lord Taggon.
