I have read the Wikipedia link and find it hard to believe that Universal would sell master tapes(was it only taped? and not filmed?) to another company. Lease distribution, maybe? Anyway I have no knowledge of screenings in Australia "from time to time" but then I watch only one network here and have a wealth of my own material to watch from all eras.
Quintex(I shuddered when I saw that name) was an Australian company and was involved in a resort in the State of Queensland that went under. It was helmed by one Christopher Skase, who father was Charles Skase. Charles was a religious man who made records of that sort of material and was a radio announcer/presenter on a radio station attached, at the time, to the Melbourne newspapers owned by the Murdoch clan. Charles lived to a rip old age. He won an annual Sun Aria singing competition run by the same newspaper(Sun was one of our three morning papers then, we still have two) in 1948, the year Christopher was born, six months before I was born in 1949. Skase was sent to two of Melbourne's prestigious Grammar Schools. Grammar schools are usually Church of England(Anglican) colleges from Year one to Year 12 as private, and expensive, schools.
Skase bought a small Tasmanian company called Quintex and started to develop it into a larger corporation getting into a resort in Queensland that started to go under and ended with Japanese investors taking control. Japanese were prolific visitors to Queensland and they had many a honeymoon there.
Skase got involved in a TV station owned by the newspaper & involved the same 3DB radio station. Then came the one that nearly lost more than a lot. He was involved in getting into MGM and a colorization company which might have spelled the end of the a lot there in the way of the films etc. As we know about the Italian guy in France & his Pathe interests who muscled in there as well. All duds. Ted Turner did us all a big favor with that archive.
Skase had started moving money out of Australia(illegally) and eventually ran away to Majorca where he resisted arrest(with Spanish help and their laws) and pleaded life threatening illness and did die in Spain in Aug 2001. He had had his Australian passport cancelled by authorities here and had become a citizen of Dominica. Proceedings were well in hand against him when he died at 52. His wife, Pixie, and family came back here and I have not heard of them for a long time. I think she was older than him and had a previous family.
It needs some detective work to find out who actually, then, owns the rights to this show and I assume that the cast get no residuals for these mentioned screenings. What else might this Quintex business have acquired rights or masters to?
