Trivia

Around 100 master tapes of this series from its early seasons (1974-1978) were erased by the Australian Broadcasting Commission. Only the efforts of Paul Drane and director Ted Emery, who, on hearing of the erasure, snuck in during the middle of the night and hid as many tapes as they could in their cars, prevented all of the tapes from this period being erased. Among the tapes they saved was the March 1975 episode that was the first to be broadcast in colour. See more »
