Young chap finds or inherits a treasure map and a camera crew follows his attempts to see if it is authentic.

A factual programme I saw on TV in the very early '80s similar in style to the Chronicle or TimeWatch series. An ex Public School boy and his chums tried to reach the island on a treasure map in his possession and dig where X marks the spot. Accompanied by a Film Crew he found that the Island (Caribbean ?) was just scrub-land and thorn bushes with no distinguishing features that would let him follow the map. I missed the ending ! Does this ring a bell with anyone ?

It wasn't the more recent treasure hunt programme about Capt. Kidd's booty in Vietnam.
