I watched this one as a mini-series (one part each weekday) back in ~1976; when it was transmitted again in the weekend back-to-back as a single block, it was the first thing I ever watched on color TV at my aunt's house. It's a very good adaptation of Verne's book, far better than others I've seen. Omar Sharif played a convincing Captain Nemo, and, AFAICR, the rest of the cast provided good acting too. I've been wanting to watch it again ever since, and thanks to the IMdB I was finally able to find out the production details
I didn't even know it had been a Spanish production! Unfortunately, it
seems it isn't available for sale on video or DVD... a real pity. I can only hope it will be released during this decade.
