Based on the children's novel by Max Fatchen, Chase Through the Night was a short children's series set in the Australian outback. Moran, in his Guide to Australian TV Series, offers the following synopsis:

Three desperate bank robbers on the run in a stolen car head for the bush into the small outback town of Caribun. They stop for petrol in an isolated general store and are recognised by Petra, a teenage girl. They bundle her into the car and continue their journey north. Arriving in the town, the robbers find that most of the townspeople have left for the long weekend. The few remaining townspeople defeat every attempt by the robbers to leave. The mini-series culminates in a violent chase on a stormy night.
