- Richard Everitt was credited from this episode onwards as executive producer. He was specifically tasked with updating the programme to ensure its longevity. His resulting innovations, although not as great as he planned, included the building of the outdoor Grape Street set, the demolition of the Glad Tidings Mission Hall and Elliston's Raincoat Factory and the building of the Maisonettes, all of which would occur in 1968.
