Thank you, Rocky. I've heard from some members of other Tintin communities that it has been accepted as the official title. I feel very flattered!

Ok so I just had a quick look at Belvision version of The Black Island. Hmm… Captain Haddock’s Irish-Boston accent!

I need the BBC Dubbed version I think.

According to my audio recordings of the 1973 BBC screenings of this series, the titles on screen as as announced by the narrator are correct except:
6 ATTACK FROM THE AIR
12 DUEL IN THE DESERT
16 RETURN OF THE KARABOUDJAN
14 BLIND ALLEY

Excellent! Thanks for that, Goldenfleece. Perhaps you could look at the rest of the titles (page 2 of this thread) and advise of any corrections, please.

The only ones I can spot are episode of Unicorn is KIDNAPPED as opposed to kidnap, BLACK ISLAND, not sure of the episode numbers but ones I have from CH4 screenings have the US narrator announcing the titles TRAPPED is one but not sure which episode, and MADMAN is the title of another, but am missing some of the Black Island off airs so can only confirm exactly 7)MURDEROUS MULLER, 8) INFERNO 9) THE GHOST OF BLACK ISLAND 10) FRIGHT IN THE NIGHT, 12) BATTLE OF BLACK ISLAND...

So the corrected English titles we have for the The Black Island are:

5. Madman
6. Trapped
7. Murderous Müller
8. Inferno
9. The Ghost of Black Island
10. Fright in the Night
12. Battle of Black Island

According to my off-air recordings yes, but am missing the first few episodes so cannot be sure about them.....I have found sometimes the actual titles announced by the narrator can vary enormously from the literal meaning of the French on screen titles......probably for some dramatic effect or to fit the American market at the time I imagine.....

also some of the cliff hanger narration can be very over dramatic, ie at the end of one of the Black Islands, when a dark shadow moves in on Tintin and Snowy when they 1st land of the island and explore the castle, the narration shouts " What is this THING on Black Island", when you dont actually get to see the gorilla beast until the next episode. Fascinating stuff......

This is precisely why they work better as episodes with cliffhangers than as compilations.

That's good info, Sgt Halibut! I believe that there were 2 other older seasons broadcast in black and white, based on Broken Ear and King Ottokar's Sceptre? From what I gather it was only in French...

Moderator note: You need to read the thread right through - the black-and-white serials, and the voice cast for their English-language dubbing are discussed in at least a couple of posts. To be fair to the other contributors, it should be noted that while the Sergeant asked the original questions, several others provided "the info"...! :-)
