“It was Jim Hedgcock (not me) who said that "three of these monsters were cast and rejected" after which the first was accepted. He was of course entirely correct. An expensive episode, though I understand that Rockefeller paid for the moulding, casting and tuning of all three. “
Presumably the two rejected bells were broken up? That can’t have been easy!
