    I watched all of those American shows.. Had a pimply faced crush on Elizabeth Montgomery. I never took to Space family Robinson.
    As for the UK shows..of which Australia purchased quite a few ..the ZCars spin off Softly Softly. Gideon's Way and Dixon of Dock Green among them. You have not mentioned perhaps two of the best Brit shows of the 60s.. The Avengers and The Prisoner. I rewatched every Avengers episode a couple of years ago.. this certainly has not dated.. John Steed and Emma Peel rule! There was also a brilliant 70s crime/mystery series called Thriller. Did you see this.

    Mr. Ed - a favourite, still is

    Did you ever see 'Del Boy' Craig ? (Fools and Horses)

    The original Flintstones - wonderful animation, script and ideas

    Not that it means a damn thing,but Rod Serling is buried in a small town cemetery about 5 miles from me. His sister used to display his late fifties Jaguar at a lot of the local car shows.
