Only 16 of the 52 editions are currently known to survive. Of these, the final five episodes exist only exist as monochrome film prints returned from New Zealand. It is believed that BetaFilm and/or ZDF in Germany may hold copies of every edition from the second season onwards, though whether these exist is presently unclear; certainly it seems the soundtracks would be dubbed if so. To further muddy the waters, it appears that the German prints may feature alternative footage which UK viewers never saw, and vice versa. Such differences even extend to the credits. See more »
Paul Temple, in my opinion, is the most under-rated television show in history. I used to watch the show when it was first screened (in Australia) in the early 70's and I became a big fan of the show. I wish I could see this again if they ever release this fantastic show on DVD. I would be the first to buy it. Francis Matthews was perfect casting for the part of the lead character Paul Temple. Also, Ros Drinkwater was perfect as his assistant "Steve". The stories were always original and kept you interested and guessing until the very end. The acting from both the lead and supporting cast members was always top-notch. Let's just hope that the BBC releases these fantastic episodes very soon so that everyone might enjoy them as I have.
