The Feathered Serpent
All 12 episodes from the 1970s childrens series.
The series is set in ancient Mexico, when the peaceful god Quala is being usurped by the new and vengeful god, Teshkata; a power struggle ensues between the just Emperor Kukhulkhan (Tony Steedman) and the scheming High Priest Nasca (Troughton). With the new temple built and riddled with secret passageways, Nasca plots his ascension through betrayal, cunning and murder. With the arrival of the rival Toltec army, led by handsome Prince Houtek (Brian Deacon), the Emperor sees a chance for peace by arranging a marriage to his daughter, Chimalma (Diane Keen). This creates tension with the rival suitor Mahoutek, General of the Jaguar Guards (Robert Gray), whose jealousy becomes a tool which Nasca exploits to his deadly advantage. It takes the courage of Houtek's messenger boy, Tozo (Richard Willis) and his blind mentor, the prophetic Otolmi (George Cormack), to find a way to defeat the powers of darkness.
