Buccaneer is a short-lived television series, made by the BBC in 1979–80, and broadcast over 13 weeks in April–July 1980. The series, dealing with a developing air freight business, starred Bryan Marshall, Pamela Salem and Clifford Rose, and was produced by Gerard Glaister. The 13 episodes were: ⁕"Reluctant Hero" ⁕"Albatross" ⁕"Grounded" ⁕"A Kind of Cuckoo" ⁕"Let's Make a Killing" ⁕"The Thin End" ⁕"Somebody's Telling Lies" ⁕"Private Arrangements" ⁕"Intruders" ⁕"Feet of Clay" ⁕"Eldorado" ⁕"A No Go Item" ⁕"Emergency" The aircraft that "starred" in the series was a Bristol Britannia of Redcoat Air Cargo, registration G-BRAC, which wore the markings of "Redair", the name of the fictional airline in the series. One reason for there being only one series of this drama was that the fact that Bristol Britannia G-BRAC was destroyed in a crash near Boston, Mass., on 16 February 1980, shortly after the completion of filming, but just before transmission of the series. Of the eight people on board, seven were killed, and only one survived, albeit seriously injured.
