Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring during episode three as Elgin is processed to commit suicide. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Intro: Wales has many delights. It has lovely, rolling green hills. It has singing societies in great profusion and a language of great charm which is both incomprehensible and unpronounceable to those not born to it. Alas, now there is something to add to the above list: something horrible and deadly, something that can only be stopped by a Time Lord if he is fortunate. That something is "The Green Death."

Outro: The full impact of the green death is too horrible for Earth minds to comprehend in the space of one night. Therefore, before our psyches are damaged by continued exposure, we end tonight's presentation. It will be continued next Sunday night at 11 when we are sufficiently recovered from the terrors of this evening. And now to help you forget the way-out horrors of space, we present the way-out humor of The Two Ronnies, coming up next. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
