I remember watching this show in Australia on black and white TV in the mid-sixties (I am 58) before going to England on an oversea's trip as most Aussies did in those days and usually by boat. It was a fabulous show (my favorite) and I think depicted the spy game probably the way it was. When assassinations had to be carried out they were quite dramatic and not the shoot'em up gun-ho stuff you see these days. I have been trying to find out if it was ever released on DVD possibly re-mastered but I gather from other comments that all episodes have been lost except maybe the pilot episode, a great tragedy. Another show of that era I never missed was 'The Trouble Shooters'. I am trying to find out if that series was ever or likely to be released on DVD also.
