History

Dead of Night ran for a single series in the autumn of 1972. Of its seven 50-minute episodes, only three—"The Exorcism", "Return Flight", and "A Woman Sobbing"—are known to exist today in the BBC's archives. Another programme made by the Dead of Night production team under Innes Lloyd, The Stone Tape, intended to be the eighth episode, does survive in the archives but was not broadcast under the Dead of Night banner.

BBC Four rebroadcast "The Exorcism" on 22 December 2007.

In October 2013 the surviving episodes were released on DVD by the BFI, with extras including a gallery of stills from the missing episodes, the downloadable scripts for all missing episodes and a booklet featuring essays and biographies by Lisa Kerrigan, Oliver Wake, Derek Johnston and Alex Davidson.
