That was interesting, especially as I'd only seen partial clips of it before.

-- The Doctor left Earth with Ian and Barbara on board because he didn't want Susan to leave him! I'd never known that.

-- As I'd been warned, it's a pretty dire episode once we get to the cavemen. There's absolutely no mystery, and no clear evil to be fought. It's just, "how do we get away from the cavemen?" At least the cavemen did have some warring factions going on, which became another hallmark of the show.

-- The TARDIS materialization noise sounds exactly the same! Of course, why change perfection?

-- Just why did they individually name all the episode parts back then? Anyone know? And when did that change?

Don't know why --- I suspect it may have had something to do with accounting and keeping track of how money was spent (Verity Lambert's commentaries make it sound like the BBC weren't willing to fully commit to keeping the show on in the initial stage) --- but I know they kept doing it at least through "The Space Museum" so, what?, a year and a half?
