The documentary was shown in the United States on various PBS stations over the years, including New Jersey, KTEH (San Jose), WFYI, WQEX, WYIN, WNIT, Louisiana Public Broadcasting, Maryland, KSPS in Spokane, and WXEL in Florida.

With the title More Than 30 Years in the TARDIS, a re-edited extended version (running to nearly 90 minutes) was released on BBC VHS in November 1994, and later in 2013 as part of "The Legacy Collection" DVD box set with Shada.

The original 30 Years... was later shown on BBC Choice in November and December 1998 and July 1999, and on BBC Prime in May 1999, while the extended More Than 30 Years... aired on UK Gold in January, August (see clipping at right), October and December 1997, and BritBox UK from 26 December 2019.
