An episode had been planned for October 1939; it was not broadcast, because BBC Television suspended operations with the outbreak of World War II on 1 September 1939. In 1940, Pringle relocated to Australia. He was in England 1946–47 between spells of employment at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and in 1949 on leave of absence, and produced episodes on both occasions.
