    The first six seasons of the series were mostly shot on black and white 405-line videotape (although some later episodes were recorded on 625-line tape and others directly onto 35mm film). Of those black and white episodes all original videotape copies were wiped. The episodes from that period still in existence today exist only in the form of telerecordings (also known as Kinescopes).
