Mission: Impossible TOD-5 (1966–1973) Online
A domestic terror group has sent one of their agents to pick up a container of a deadly biological weapon in a small desert town. But the IMF convinces him that he's already been exposed to the germ, and the military is sealing off the town to contain the leak.

The recorded message for Phelps does not appear on the customary tape, but on a vinyl record played on an antique Victrola.
Lynda Day George (Casey) character's absence is explained by Phelps at the beginning of the mission when he tells the group that she is handling the operations on the European branch of the Alpha Group and will wait for the IMF team in the US first before acting. Since she was pregnant during the filming season, the female role went to Barbara Anderson (Mimi).
The morgue set was later reused in the episode "Boomerang".
Two Nazi symbols can be seen carved into the bridge used as part of the background at 21:24 into the episode. The bridge number is 437.
The IMF crew worked overtime in this episode. In less than a day, they closed access to the town and blocked the bridge (it appears there is only one way in and out of town), and they replaced the residents of the town with their own people so they could fool Peter Holt into thinking that he was infected by the biological weapon, TOD-5 and that others had died from it.
