These are the intros for each of the films

I spent a month filming in The African Bush, My character Doe Doe Roberts was one of four diamond smugglers, The character Grigg played by James Coburn Jnr. decided renege on us while we were all asleep, He killed one of the smugglers called Muldoon and stole the diamonds, So myself and Stern set off in hot pursuit across the African bush and tracked him down to The Omega Bar where eventually all smugglers end up. We were in the midst of roughing up the bar flies and the Owner called Cliff ( John Wyman ) for information on the diamonds when Chaser ( Cliff Twemlow ) enters and then a stick fight ensues, and then my character was killed off.

Below are a number of video captures from the action and fights scenes
