Considering the popularity of The Avengers in France, it seems quite astounding to consider that the Emma Peel episodes were not fully aired there until 1991. The episodes were dubbed into French in two batches, the first in the 1960s and the remainder in 1993 for the EMI home video releases, with the upshot that in Series 4 in France, Emma Peel has two voices! Four episodes A Touch of Brimstone, The Danger Makers, Honey for the Prince and Room Without A View were dubbed in the 1960s but not screened until they were screened by FR3 (now France 3) as part of their Continentales programme.
