Australia's ABC Television has posted the first five episodes of the 1964 series The Stranger on YouTube. I've only watched the first episode so far, but so far I'm really liking it.
ABC News said:Way back when Doctor Who's TARDIS was only just taking off, an Australian TV series was exploring the science fiction genre. The Stranger was Australia's first locally-produced science fiction television show and one of the first Australian series to be sold overseas. It was immediately popular after it first aired on the ABC on April 5, 1964, but has since faded into obscurity. While Doctor Who developed a cult following over the following decades, The Stranger sat untouched in the ABC's film archives. But thanks to a team of dedicated film archivists, the series will have a new life after being remastered for ABC iview. The first episode was launched for streaming on Wednesday afternoon and can be streamed on ABC iview now.
You can watch it on iview or on the ABC TV and iview YouTube channel.
