After it had exploited Doctor Who to countries in Australasia and Asia, the BBC turned its attention to its colonies and Commonwealth nations in Africa, selling William Hartnell stories to Nigeria, Rhodesia, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Mauritius and Sierra Leone all within the two year period, 1965 to 1967.

The last ever sale of Hartnell stories was to Algeria, in North Africa.

The BBC had only moderate success with selling colour stories to Africa in the late 1970s / early and late 1980s, with only Rhodesia and Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana, Swaziland, Seychelles, and Sierra Leone picking up Jon Pertwee and/or Tom Baker episodes.
