(i) This episode was shown in place of The Rotters, which was billed in TV Times magazine. Newspaper listings confirm this substitution and The Rotters was finally broadcast in the Yorkshire region on 1st February 1969.

(ii) On Wednesday 19th March 1969, three days before Who Was That Man I Saw You With? was due to be transmitted by Yorkshire Television, the Emley Moor transmission mast which covered West and North Yorkshire and North Derbyshire collapsed due to a build-up of ice on both the mast and the guide cables. This meant that the intended transmission of Who Was That Man I Saw You With? on Saturday 22nd March 1969 could not be received anywhere in the Yorkshire Television region. A 61 metre temporary mast was erected by the ITA the following day to give a reduced service and so Homicide and Old Lace was shown the following week but those in outlying parts of the region may have had a poor signal. The ITA then acquired a 204 metre mast from the Swedish Army and this was up and running in 28 days to resume a more or less full service. However, it wasn't until January 1971 that the current concrete tower/mast came on line. Who Was That Man I Saw You With? was eventually re-scheduled and transmitted on Yorkshire Television on Saturday 10th May 1969. (With thanks to Mike Richardson and Rory Clark.)
