Production Notes

CALL SHEET
Possibly one of the most interesting call sheets of the series, the one below for this episode's 4th day of shooting is loaded with information. First, it confirms that this episode was produced as part of The Six Million Dollar Man series, it is the first time shooting at the Elgin ranch set, it includes additional scenes to be shot for "The Secret of Bigfoot", and it hints at a missing scene with Jaime's student Teddy at the coach house! To top it off, there is an awesome pencil sketch of a space capsule on the bottom of the page. Please note that some information has been redacted for privacy protection.

SET CONSTRUCTION ESTIMATE
Page 1 of the Set Estimate sheet shows a proposed breakdown of sets needed, the scenes in which they will be used, the estimated cost for each set, and the set's location.

 


ORIGINAL BROADCAST
In the years since this episode's first network airing, it had become widely accepted that Part I of this story was originally broadcast as an episode of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN. Press releases were sent out, and TV GUIDE & newspaper ads were published, thus creating a paper trail backing up the belief that "Welcome Home, Jaime" Part I was a SMDM episode. Documentation has since surfaced showing that "Welcome Home, Jaime" Part I was indeed scheduled to air on January 11, 1976 as part of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN series. However, for reasons still unknown, the episode was pulled from the SMDM and debuted on January 14, 1976 as the first episode of THE BIONIC WOMAN series. These events are supported by the ABC press releases below. It appears that a SMDM version of "Welcome Home, Jaime" Part I had been produced, but to date, it remains unseen.
