I am hoping I can find an answer here to a question that has plagued me for many years.I vividly remember a tv show that was on in the early 80's when I was a small child.I can't remember that much except that it's plot was about a man who came to Earth from the Sun.Somehow he had actually lived on the Sun and was a native from there.About the only other thing I can remember is that he of course didn't want humans to find out his secret and I recall a scene where he is being chased through the woods in the afternoon by humans and possibly dogs and as he sees the Sun through the trees as he is running he keeps longing for home.I can't remember the years it was on but I would guess 1980-1983? I believe it was a short lived series. I know this show existed as what I described has been strongly in my memory all this time but I can't find out anything about it.Searches turn up nothing.I would so love to find out the name of this program so I could discover it again.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks much!
It sounds like you might be referring to The Phoenix. (It was shown on the SciFi channel some years ago, if I recall correctly.) Although the protagonist is not listed as "from the Sun", he did receive power by an amulet being exposed to sunlight. According to the wikipedia article, the show was broadcast in 1982 (so that fits) and only the pilot and four other episodes were filmed and broadcast.
There are several few episodes on Youtube [hat tip to dave]
