Ballard; Producer - Aida Young; Music - Mario Nascimbene; Cinematography - Dick Bush; Editor - Peter Curran; Art Direction - John Blezard; Makeup - Richard Mills; Special effects - Jim Danforth, Dave Allen, Alan Bryce, Roger Dicken, Brian Johnson, Martin Gutteridge, Brian Humnphrey and Garth Inns. 1970.

      "A time of beginnings, of darkness, of light, of the sun, the earth, the sea, of man! The beginnings of man living with man, by the sea, in the mountains. The beginning of love, hate, and fear. Man's fear of the unknown. Man's fear lest the sun should leave him, leave him alone in everlasting darkness. A time when the color of a woman's hair condemned her to sacrifice to the sun. A time when there was as yet no moon."
      A tribe is ritually sacrificing three blondes to the sun. One of the blondes tries to escape but both her and one of the men chasing her fall to their death. A sudden wind storm creates enough chaos for one blond, Sanna, to escape into the sea, where she is rescued by Tara, who happens to be going by on a raft. Word reaches the tribal leader that she still lives.
      Tara takes Sanna to his seaside tribe, where a plesiosaur that was roped, escapes temporarily, but is recaptured and burned to death. At the feast afterwards, we learn that a brunette woman, Ayak, is interested in Tara, but he is fascinated with Sanna who has set up a hut. He brings her food. After a fight between Sanna and Ayak in the water, Sanna's former tribe arrives, looking for her. She flees and is followed by pursuers. Hiding in a tree, a boa tries to wrap itself around her but attacks and kills one of the men, whom the three other men can't help. They think Sanna is in a nearby cave, but a triceratops attacks instead, wounding the men. Vultures, not content as scavengers, take swipes at the wounded. When Tara seeks Sanna, he finds the one man dead and, after the triceratops charges and runs off a cliff, rescues the others.
      A funeral pyre at sea is followed by a tribal frenzy during which Sanna's hut gets burned and Tara runs away. Sanna meanwhile has faced a vicious prehistoric long-tongued lizard and is nearly eaten by a plant. She cuts off her hair to escape the plant. Tara unfortunately thinks Sanna has been eaten by the man-eating plant.
      Sanna sleeps in a large dinosaur eggshell. The other egg hatches and the dinosaur imprints. The parent, thinking Sanna has hatched, brings her a deer carcass. Sanna plays with her new sibling. She dives and catches fish in her teeth. She finds her dinosaur involved in a fight with a few men, and she call off the dinosaur.
      After an incident involving Tara vs. a pterodon, he and Sanna reunite and go to her cave, witnessed by a lookout. When Tara returns to the tribe, he is challenged, tied to a raft, and set to sea with the raft burning. A sea monster knocks over the raft; Tara escapes and staggers back to Sanna. But the tribe is still searching for Sanna, and see smoke from her fire. The two run, swim, climb, and witness some dinosaur fights, but are captured. Sanna's dino sibling rescues her, but Tara they prepare to burn again. A giant crab kills a few men as the weather grows ominous again. The moon seems to be forming, and a tidal wave looms. Sanna arrives to save Tara from the giant crab, and a raft escape begins to take shape. The tribal leader tries commanding the water to heel. Ayak gets sucked into quicksand, and the leader is drowned. Sanna and Tara and two other people survive and witness an eclipse, as now the moon exists.
