Two very different examples: U.S. series "I Spy" (1965-1968) regularly was set in countries around the world, and much of the time was actually shot in those countries. A refreshing change of pace from the backlot.
Australian series "Homicide" (1964-1977) was set in Melbourne and its suburbs, and was extensively filmed in those areas. That's part of the reason I enjoyed watching a bunch of episodes a few years ago....it's fun seeing areas I know today as they looked back in the 1960s (so much so, that I forgave the episodes for the cardboard sets and hammy acting...).
On that note, can you people name some other 1960s series with a good deal of location shooting? It doesn't necessarily have to be exotic locations....
(note: I have been awake for 24 hours as I post this, I hope I made no errors).
Route 66's "sister show", Naked City, was filmed on location in New York City. From the same period, featuriting some NYC location filming: Car 54, Where Are You? and The Defenders. Also, the one season series about a social worker dealing with a heap of trouble souls, the excellent East Side, West Side.
