My parents and I used to watch this on ABC TV here in Australia when it was shown in the early '60, back in the days when it was still black and white tele! I was 11 at the time and just starting to become aware of the dramatic potential of outer space and of alien intelligences. The show was the highlight of my week, and I was upset to read that the series cannot ever be shown again, having been obliterated. It was well made, well scripted and so many of the actors went on to do great work in later TV and movies.
