  • The Hong Kong prints were presumably sent to Singapore soon after transmission.
  • Singapore presumably sent the films to Nigeria, since that was also the final destination of RTV's prints of The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear.
  • The sale to Gibraltar was actually "back-catalogue", as they had already started screening Jon Pertwee stories by this time.
  • The New Zealand prints were likely disposed of by the end of 1974. (The NZBC's rights to screen the story had expired on 31 August 1973.)
  • The ABC in Australia returned its prints to the BBC on 4 June 1975.
  • The print of episode two that was subsequently recovered in 1982 may have been the print returned from Australia in 1975, or a print returned from Gibraltar, and which had been salvaged by a film collector after being junked by the BBC.
