I was a bit too young to appreciate no hiding place at the time ( but i do remember it) . But in all honesty Ive really enjoyed the episodes that Ive seen on talking pictures. Sure, its very much a production of its time, but it seems to be well written and in general , well produced. I for one would like to see more, not just because its (for the want of a better word) rare. But because its decent entertainment
Talking Pictures TV showing two previously missing episodes of No Hiding Place on "Wed 07 Apr 21 16:30 No Hiding Place - Death on The Doorstep . 1963. Stars Raymond Francis, Eric Lander, Derek Smith, Barry Steele & Brian Badcoe.
Sun 11 Apr 21 08:00 No Hiding Place - Inquest on an Idol 1962. Stars Eric Lander, Raymond Francis, Nick Barker, Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Warren Mitchell, Angela Douglas & Lisa Daniely.
The Trivia on IMDB now notes "This programme was obviously shown 'live' on television and was not prerecorded before transmission. At one point in this episode, Eric Lander forgot his lines and a voice out of shot could clearly be heard offering him a prompt."

May have still been recorded as they were reluctant to stop filming in those days and boom mikes dropping, fluffed lines etc often could go out like that..
Apparently a visitor to the set of a Danziger (notorious for clock watching) production 'Saber of London' observed a scene where the cameraman said "we need two policemen in this shot we have only got one" to which the director replied " where is he? we haven't got time, F#!! the policeman, just get the shot" LOL
The newly-rediscovered Inquest on an Idol, which was shown on Talking Pictures on Sunday has new info on IMDB:
Trivia: Dead film star Connery Fleming is a clear nod to the new 007 franchise, Dr. No (1962) being about to premiere in a matter of months. Crazy Credits: The first advert break in the episode occurs at the point where a television interview breaks up in chaos and the TV director quickly cuts to commercial break. We see a TV camera in the story crab across and line up on an "End of Part One" card on an easel, which changes to the episode's own normal "End of Part One" caption with a fingerprint in the background.
