  • In mid-1967, New Zealand was sent the prints that had been used by the ABC in Australia. (The Reign of Terror was the first story in this consignment of 17 episodes.)
  • The story was not dubbed for screening in any Spanish or Arabic language countries. And like Marco Polo, The Crusade and The Time Meddler, the negatives were not kept.
  • The New Zealand prints were destroyed on 18 June 1971.
  • Although the serial had not aired there, prints of parts one, two, three and six were subsequently found in Cyprus in late 1984. (The films had been sent to Cyprus along with the rest of the first season; but the six-parter did not air, possibly on account of censorship.)
  • Prints of episodes 3 and 6 were later recovered in 1982 and 1985; these were Stored Field prints, but may have just been unused spares that the BBC had junked. But if they were returns from overseas, the only likely source is Sierra Leone, who returned all its prints to the BBC in 1974.
