Scifi Movies/Kids/teen Sci-fi Tv show, Early 90's


I recently had a conversation with a work colleague about various shows we used to watch as kids...a vague flashback sprang to mind but very sketchy on details.
I recall it being shown in the UK during the early 90's, futuristic, with some (if not predominantly) Australian/NZ cast. There were some teens being pursued around by a bounty hunter/army guy/dirty cyber cop who's name was something like LaRouche...Fartoosh (muscly, stocky guy with a husky voice) who had piercings and tattoos I believe (& a shaven head). While he was pursuing them he was wearing black post-apocalyptic SWAT gear...but at some point he got locked-up & was rehabilitated (or had a chip implanted to stop his aggression) then started wearing white casual wear. I think the kids had something special or valuable that he wanted.
I thought it was the Tomorrow People rebirth but I don't think it is now.
I believe the DeRouche or whatever his name was actor portrayed a bad guy in Betty's Bunch...but if so, his Imdb has no pic, which is my only way of identifying him.

I know that's not a whole bunch to go on but anything you can do would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Chris

I don't know for sure off-hand what this tv series is you are loking for, though I may be able to find it for you. Being from New Zealand I do recall a few Australian/NZ kids Sci-Fi shows like Children from the Dog Star and Parallax etc.. I will have a look and see if I can pin point the show yo are looking for. Sorry I can't be of more help at this time. I will get back to you if I find something ASAP.



Update: Girl From Tomorrow (1991)

Bad guy Silverthorn (John Howard)
