Description by OLDIES.com:
Dr. Tom Reynolds and his associate Professor Howard Ogden travel the dark and dangerous jungles of Africa and India. Accompanied by a succession of local guides, Dr. Reynolds, respectfully known as Ramar (Great White Doctor) to the native tribesmen, becomes involved in a series of adventures which set him against an assortment of villains. Witch doctors, smugglers, mad scientists and exotic wildlife keep Ramar and company on their toes in every thrilling episode. "Ramar of the Jungle" was created by and starred Jon Hall. The show was wildly successful during its short run of two years, offering an exciting and sometimes violent picture of distant lands.
The Voice In The Sky: The otherworldly voice of the native god Nakihama seems to descend from the sky, commanding young women to surrender themselves to sacrifice. Doctor Reynolds believes something far less supernatural and far more sinister is going on.
The Unknown Terror: Doctor Reynolds comes to the medical aid of an injured worker, despite warnings that intervening would be a serious afront to the healing abilities of the local yogi. Enraged, the yogi plans a swift revenge on Ramar.
The Mystic Pawn: Ramar and Howard intervene in the apparent kidnapping of a young woman, who claims her assailant is a complete stranger. After returning her to the home of her teacher, a local guru, they question her attacker, who claims he is the girl's father.
The Road Of No Return: Ramar, Professor Ogden and Zahir drink some water from a legendary haunted well with dire results.
RAMAR OF THE JUNGLE was a TV show that followed the exploits of Dr. Tom Reynolds and his sidekick Professor Howard Ogden as they administered aid throughout the jungles of Africa and India. This ninth collection of RAMAR delights includes four episodes in their entirety. Among them are "The Voice in the Sky," in which voices from a God appear to be affecting local villagers; "The Unknown Terror," which sees Reynolds in trouble with a yogi; "The Mystic Pawn," in which the doctor is involved in a strange kidnapping case; and "The Road of No Return," in which some drinking water proves less than palatable for the beleaguered Reynolds.
