  • The Hong Kong prints were sent to Singapore soon after transmission.
  • The Singapore prints were sent to BPTV in Nigeria by the end of 1974 (possibly via Gibraltar and Zambia). The films were recovered and returned to the BBC in 2013.
  • The sale to Gibraltar was actually "back-catalogue", as they had already started screening Jon Pertwee stories by this time.
  • The New Zealand prints were likely disposed of by the end of 1974. (The NZBC's rights to screen the story had expired on 31 March 1974.)
  • The ABC in Australia returned its prints to the BBC on 4 June 1975.
  • The BBC retained its original 16mm telerecording negative of part 3. It also retained a print: was this a viewing print, or was it a copy that had been returned from overseas? (If so, it may have been the print from Australia.)
  • A 16mm b/w print of episode 6 was apparently found in Taiwan in 2013. See Taiwan Prints for more.
  • See also the Troughton Junkings page.


  • On 11 October 2013, the newly-discovered serial was made available to purchase as a download from iTunes. It was subsequently made available on other streaming sites.
  • The story was later dubbed into German and released on DVD.
