Indonesia – Bali
28 December 1982
||Diccon and Deborah Ruscombe-King, fish farmers from Cornwall
||In a place of rest for pendendas, not in the Kerta Gosa, you’ll
find the clue on a pillar under a mural of a dark skinned Mahabarata waving
a shield. 1
||Klunkung – floating pavilion
||In the ravine of Pakrisan the ashes of Erlangga’s youngest
brother and his family are entombed. Your treasure is a Tiger Cowrie beneath
the stoup that stands before the second mausoleum. 2
||Gunang Kawi – ancient tomb sanctuary
||Near a cave entrance that the Balinese say was carved by the
giant Kbo Iwa are sunken baths. Count the figures in those baths.
||Bedulu – sunken baths
||In the old Imperial Pura Panataran Sasih, you must leave a
traditional Hindu offering in front of the wonderful bronze object, said to
have fallen from the sky, to win the prize. 4
||Pejeng – Pura Panataran Sasih temple
||Go to the Pura Langon and find a necklace on a statue beyond
the water. 5
||Ubud – Pura Langon temple
||The contestants ran out of time on the final clue.
||The cameraman was Jean-Yves Lemener (instead of Graham Berry),
the video recordist was Bruno Delattre (instead of Frank Meyburgh) and the pilot
was Quentin (instead of Keith Thompson).
||Kerta Gosa is the courthouse.
||The helicopter has to land some distance away from the ravine
where the tombs are located, so Annie has to frantically ask a bunch of
non-English-speaking locals whether anyone can give her a lift. She manages to
borrow a motorbike from a reluctant local, which takes her part of the way there.
She then descends a long flight of steps, which takes her into the mausoleum area
where she has to don a sacred yellow belt before entering. The treasure she finds
is a shell.
||The helicopter does not land for this clue and Anneka just
has to count the number of stone figures pouring water into the baths. There
||Anneka has to take the peace offering and place it before
the sacred bronze gong/drum, known as “The Moon of Pejeng”.
||The necklace was located on a small statue of a hippopotamus
on the banks of the water, near the temple.
