Trivia:
Episodes 21-24 (the majority of "The Day of the Clone") were made in black & white due to union action over a technicians' pay dispute at ITV (which effectively prevented any sales to US stations). However, although all of the episodes exist as monochrome 16mm film prints, only the sixth episode of "The Time of the Ice-Box" is known to still survive as an original colour videotape copy.See more »

A Sci-Fi Classic, 10 February 2001
Author: Eric Albert Redfearn (e.redfearn@ntlworld.com) from Middlesbrough, Teesside, U.K.

This was actually released on Video quite a few years ago, and I bought the first three series, but somehow missed out on the fourth. This is a classic children's sci-fi drama which gripped tea time viewers during 1970. Comical in parts, and quite dramatic in others, particularly the cliff hangers which left you waiting for the next episode. Those who love Cult TV would have really enjoyed this. Perhaps now is the time for a re-release, perhaps on DVD.
