It premiered in the UK in early 1956 and ran for 39 thirty-minute episodes. The first twelve episodes were filmed in the United States, at the Hal Roach studios, with the rest being filmed at ITC's traditional home of Elstree.[1]

A 5-disc DVD set containing all thirty-nine episodes was released by Network Studio on 12 April 2010 (currently only in Region 2 PAL format; not yet available in the United States).

ITC produced a film based on the same source-material, The Count of Monte-Cristo, in 1975.
