Although Thames were generally better for keeping adult drama pre-1972 than they were for keeping children's (e.g. Ace Of Wands, Sexton Blake, The Tingaree Affair, The Queen Street Gang etc.). As I understand it, the series was not repeated here but presumably there was some kind of afterlife for it overseas. I'm looking forward to seeing this one and would like to give a mention to all those other ITV anthologies around the same time such as The Root Of All Evil, Tales Of Unease, The Frighteners and Suspicion etc. I hope they all find their way to DVD eventually.
Its a shame, as similar bbc things at the time, dead of night, menace and season 4 of ootu lack most of their episodes.
Yes, it's a great shame the BBC equivalents of those anthologies are largely wiped. ITV archives (with some notable exceptions) are generally more complete, which is illustrated by the appearance on DVD of many vintage obscurities courtesy of Network. As the release of Shadows Of Fear proves too, there is plenty more good stuff to release. Single plays as a whole have not been so well represented on DVD until now, so any move in this direction is welcome!
Not offhand, no. Towards the end of the run, I think. Timeslip was also affected along with many series such as Budgie, Public Eye, Crossroads, Upstairs Downstairs, Doctor In The House and many other dramas and sitcoms etc.
I've ordered from Network. I wanted to support the troubled HMV but it's a web exclusive. 'Come into my Parlour' and the other 1973 show were the only 2 I saw complete as for some reason they put them in the Armchair Thriller repeat slot. Around 2 O clock on a weekday afternoon!
