Not the first time I have asked this, so apologies - but it does intrigue me.

Back in 1967 I watched season 5 on ABC Television (midlands). The teaser/tag scenes were not shown, and I was actually unaware of their existence until I watched the repeats on Channel 4 in 1982, but evidence suggests there was an awareness of them in '67.

I assume this was gained either from US screenings in 1967 or certain ITV regions carried them on original broadcast - but if the latter is the case why did the producing company (ABC) omit them? If generally omitted I can only assume this was due to timing issues, or maybe ITA were unhappy with the concept and felt it detracted from the series. They were, after all, dropped mid-season after the spring 1967 production recess.

Does anyone recall them being broadcast by any other ITV region on debut?

Individual ITV regions may have removed them, there were cut prints with other scenes missing returned from Scottish TV as I recall, all removed to cut down the length of the episode for their broadcast slot (ie timing reasons).
