This show IS available on DVD
26 July 2005 | by (Brisbane, California) – See all my reviews

My wife found me a DVD with three episodes of this show at a dollar store in the Sacramento, CA area. The DVD is apparently produced by Television Classics of Solana Beach, California. If you are a fan, as I have become, then happy hunting!

The show stars Michael Rennie.

And Jonathan Harris.

Harry Lime is the hero.

The three episodes on my DVD are: "The Man Who Died Twice" "Dark Island" and "A Little Knowledge"

Hope this helps.
