Missing episode status[]

This is one of the currently missing episodes of the second, 1968 series of the programme. Due to several issues in the 1960s BBC, missing episodes are presumed partially or completely lost from existing television archives, until rediscovered. Only five stories (in six episodes) of the sixteen episodes from the 1968 series are known to have survived intact. [1]
