The UK screenings of this serial on BBC Television were plagued by technical problems. The BBC cut the original 4 x 75-minute editions down into 12 x 25-minute ones, but the print of episode 12 somehow created seemingly insurmountable vision breakdowns, causing picture interruption on every attempt to broadcast it.

This used to be shown nearly every six weeks summer holidays in England back in the 70s.
It might be old but I think it is great. From the stirring and uplifting theme tune to the quite lavish costumes and battle scenes it does have a fairly epic feel. It was also quite well dubbed into English which I think is much better than subtitles.
Never recognised any of the actors because it was a foreign series but they all do a capable job and there is enough action to keep things moving along at a good pace.
This seems to have had quite a high budget judging by the costumes, number of extras and overall professional look and it was certainly good, entertaining viewing in those long ago summer holidays of the 70s.
