The BBC did not start adding the copyright notice and date of production to the end of programmes until 1972. 'Terror of the Autons' was produced in 1970 and shown at the start of 1971, hence the...

I don't know if it was shown on cable or satellite first, but it didn't make its BBC debut (as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles) until 1990, so in the UK at least, 'Turtle Power' was very much a...
