The final teaming of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The first half of the two-hour show was broadcast on the BBC three days before Cushing died of cancer. Producer Michael Carreras died shortly after that. Music was courtesy of Silva Screen Records. Because of time considerations, the program was broadcast on the BBC in a rough-cut form. It was subsequently re-edited for release on videotape in the US. Yet another version has been released on DVD in Japan, the US and Austalia. An expanded, 135 minute version is due to be released in the UK in 1997.
