Do you have memories of The Beachcombers? Please share them with us! Thanks… POST a comment below
Filming on The Beachcombers CBC TV series set outside Relic’s houseboat in Gibsons, on the Sunshine Coast BC Canada. You can see both the Persephone and Relic’s jet boat aka “Highballer” Plus actors Bruno Gerussi who played Nick Adonidas; Robert Clothier who played Relic; Pat John who played Jesse Jim; as well as Jackson Davies who played Contstable John Constable. This photo I believe is circa 1977-78 and was taken by me as a young child and fan of the show and television production while spending the summer in Gibsons Landing at my Aunt Marilyn ne Hollowink and Uncle Harry Laing’s place. I remember getting second degree sunburns that summer watching the filming all day only to see it pass in seconds when it actually aired on TV every Sunday night at 7pm after Walt Disney.

I used to watch this show with my Dad when I was really young (5 to 9. MY twin sister & I used to have recurring nightmares about Bruno Gerussi and Relic as pirates coming to our house and trying to rob us until we were 12. My brother Pat used to save us every time!! Still love to watch the old episodes!!
I was wondering what happened to an iconic scene that used to be in the either the intro or the end of the Beachcombers. It’s when Relic in the jet boat jumps over a sand bar between two little islands and the camera freeze frames while the jet boat is in mid air. I can’t find a clip of it on the internet anywhere, and my brother is starting to doubt my memory (so am I). Can you confirm the existance of this elusive clip? Thanks so much for your time
