The two Mark Stevens episodes on the DVD appear to have been performed
live with some filmed inserts and, like the Gargan episodes, were
recorded using the kinescope process. Based on the American casts
in both of the Stevens episodes, I’m inclined to believe that
these two episodes were produced in the U.S. rather than Europe. [RBH]
