    I remember watching this as a kid on ABC. Having taped it on VHS, I watched it a lot over the years until I lost it in a house move.

    Today, what I remember the most was the rare footage that I haven’t seen anywhere else before or since. Unfortunately I cannot find a copy anywhere. I don’t think it was ever released other than being broadcast. There are some YT vids but a lot of them have been blocked due to copyright issues.
