    If you speak German, the entire series is now available in a language you can speak.

    This has been an incredibly rare series to find in English. Because the series was an MGM co-production it used the talents of MGM-British regular actors and directors. The preview on YouTube looks excellent.

    This is like one of those good news/bad news jokes. The good news is that this series is available on DVD, the bad news is that it is in German! At least the rights must be available, one for Network to try to get hold of for the UK market.

    I've noticed that, unlike DVD companies in the UK or US, DVD companies in Germany only release British and American films and television series with German dialogue, which must certainly reduce sales to other countries.

    That's probably because they were dubbed into German for the original TV sales (see The Persuaders https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Persuaders! about how much of a difference this can make), so there's little incentive for German DVD distributors to go for the original English language versions. Especially as they may only have distribution rights for Germany (or more accurately, don't have distribution rights in UK/US markets).

    You could be right about that, agutterfan.

    The German release of the colour version of 'Too Hot to Handle' had me thinking 'surely this must get an English release soon' - still not happened.

    Back in 1964 David Niven made a TV series called "The Rogues". This was and still is available from Germany where it was also broadcast. It has German & English dialogue tracks BUT!! They only ever showed 20 episodes of the full 30 in the series and so their DVD only has 20 shows.
    The DVD advert for the German "Zero One" is for only 13 episodes. Were all 39 episode aired there?

    Bugger, bugger! Looks like 13 episodes were not transmitted in Germany
