Many editions of this series no longer exist in the BBC archives, and are presumed lost. Among the editions which survive include "Talking to a Stranger" and "The Year of the Sex Olympics".
The title is based upon a quote from William Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar" (Act I, Scene II): "Beware the ides of March".
The first ever television drama co-production between the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).
Sadly, shortly after production wrapped, cameraman Frank Parnell died in a helicopter accident.
This was the second attempt to make this program. The first was shot and edited but the tape was inadvertently wiped before transmission. The cast and production team were persuaded to remount it largely because the remount would be made in colour, whereas the original was b&w.
Originally filmed in color, only black and white copies are known to exist today.
