I stand corrected. I don't think the show has played in these parts for many decades, at least on free to air tv. (It may turn up on cable, or as we aptly call it down here, pay tv). I'll have to check it out, if I ever get a chance - the last time this show was on I was far too young to pick up on any subtleties. I liked the theme tune, though.
