EXPLANATION (AND – BE WARNED – NOT A VERY GOOD ONE…)

The other day I was looking for some documents and found a folder on the hard drive that I’d assembled for a data exercise that I’d undertaken using data concerning the UK broadcasts of “The Avengers” from 1961 to 1976 to study patterns in original screenings, slot changes, relaying and repeats across the ITV regions – really to test out certain notions of cataloguing broadcasts involving spreadsheets and Alteryx and Access and key fields and look-ups and one-to-manys and tedious stuff like that. And there it was, still sat there, doing nothing, after a few years. Mike Richardson’s done a staggeringly good book on the show’s history, Alan Hayes’ Avengers Declassified website has stacks of first-run data… so, I can’t honestly see any practical use for this data…

… but, hey!, here it is. In case it is of use or interest to somebody else. For research. For nostalgia. For the construction of something in MS Access. It’s just sat there. Data. And I don’t even know how accurate it is. I’m just saying: “Hey! Here’s a thing I found and it’s a bit rough and ready, but I’m putting it out there in case it’s of use or interest.” I’m sure people with access to more data can add to it – and I wish them immense joy of doing so! – and fill in the blanks of repeats via newspapers and scrapbooks and collections of listings magazines and diaries and memories buried deep in their hippocampi.

And it's probably full of mistakes. So - y'know - have fun! Smile

I shall not be listing any episodes that I consider to be “first run” for a given territory. For these listings, please consult the superbly annotated tables assembled by Alan Hayes at his very find Avengers Declassified website: http://www.avengers.culttv.uk/index.htm. Just look at that instead. It looks really nice and is properly laid out and edited and everything as opposed to this clumsy data dump.

I will be going into tedious detail on series that “The Avengers” effectively replaced or was replaced by purely because I don’t very series in isolation, but want to understand the context of their scheduling and other shows that broadcasters perceived as similar for that audience.

I’ll probably place this on specific fora for “The Avengers” and some general archive television for a as well…

Mods: please feel free to remove this entire thread if it plumbs new depths of tedium and pointlessness.

ABC

This weekend broadcaster – which operated two regions, ABC North and ABC Midlands – was effectively the originating company for “The Avengers” from 1961 to July 1968, after which ABC was basically merged with the weekday London operator Rediffusion to form Thames Television which operated from August 1968. As such, its transmissions of “The Avengers” have been very thoroughly documented over the years.

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing the Western “Maverick”, the run of live/videotaped 26 episodes starring Ian Hendry and Patrick Macnee aired weekly on Saturdays from 7 January to 4 March 1961, after which it alternated on a fortnightly basis with the ATV newsroom drama “Deadline Midnight” from 18 March to 2 September by which time 22 episodes had aired. The slot was then given over to “Deadline Midnight”. Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the final four episodes were scheduled weekly on Saturdays from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to films in the New Year.

SERIES TWO
Replacing the ABC science-fiction anthology “Out of this World”, the run of videotaped 26 episodes starring Patrick Macnee with Honor Blackman, Julie Stevens or Jon Rollason aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September 1962 to 23 March 1963, after which it was replaced by ABC’s filmed psychiatric drama “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing the ATV period police procedural “Sergeant Cork”, the run of videotaped 26 episodes starring Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964, after which it was replaced by ABC’s private security drama “The Protectors”.

BEST OF THE AVENGERS
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, this was intended to be the first set of repeats for “The Avengers” with seven selected episodes from Series Two scheduled across the summer from Saturday 4 July 1964 until 15 August, after which it was replaced by further episodes of “Sergeant Cork”.
Sat 04/07/1964 22:20 Death of a Great Dane [not broadcast because of industrial action]
Sat 11/07/1964 22:20 Mr Teddy Bear
Sat 18/07/1964 22:20 Intercrime
Sat 25/07/1964 22:20 The Decapod
Sat 01/08/1964 22:20 Bullseye
Sat 08/08/1964 22:20 Dead on Course
Sat 15/08/1964 22:20 The Mauritius Penny

SERIES FOUR
Replacing the US private investigator series “Hawaiian Eye”, the run of 26 filmed monochrome episodes starring Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg aired weekly on Saturdays from 2 October 1965 to 26 March 1966, after which it was replaced by the ABC military police drama “Redcap”.

SERIES FIVE
Effectively replacing the ABC business espionage drama “Intrigue”, the first batch of 24 filmed colour episodes starring Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg aired (in monochrome) weekly on Saturdays from 14 January to 6 May 1967, with a one-week break for the ABC/Desilu special “Lucy in London”.

For this one-week break, a repeat from the previous series was scheduled across the weekend in a different slot:
Sun 26/03/1967 22:10 The Cybernauts

Following the sixteen new episodes, further Series Four repeats were scheduled from 13 May to 1 July 1967, after which the repeats were replaced by ABC’s counter-espionage series “Callan”.
Sat 13/05/1967 21:10 Two's A Crowd
Sat 20/05/1967 21:10 Room Without a View
Sat 27/05/1967 21:15 Death at Bargain Prices
Sat 03/06/1967 21:10 The Murder Market
Sat 10/06/1967 21:10 Man-Eater of Surrey Green
Sat 17/06/1967 21:10 Dial a Deadly Number
Sat 24/06/1967 21:10 The Grave-Diggers
Sat 01/07/1967 21:10 A Surfeit of H2O

The new episodes resumed in the autumn as replacement for the US police procedural “The FBI”, airing weekly on Saturdays from 30 September to 18 November 1967, after which it was replaced by ABC’s supernatural investigation drama “Haunted”.

There were then further repeats from Series Four. These replaced the ABC private investigator series “Public Eye” and ran weekly on Saturdays from 20 April to 8 June 1968, after which it was effectively replaced by ABC’s play anthology “Armchair Theatre”.
Sat 20/04/1968 21:10 Castle De'Ath [possibly not broadcast]
Sat 27/04/1968 21:15 The Master Minds
Sat 04/05/1968 21:10 The Hour that Never Was
Sat 11/05/1968 21:10 Silent Dust
Sat 18/05/1968 21:10 Small Game for Big Hunters
Sat 25/05/1968 21:10 The Girl from Auntie
Sat 01/06/1968 21:10 The Thirteenth Hole
Sat 08/06/1968 21:10 Quick-Quick Slow Death

These were the final episodes of “The Avengers” to air on ABC’s split regions.

THAMES

Thames went on air during August 1968 as a weekday broadcaster, effectively replacing Rediffusion and operating from Monday to Friday (although Friday evening saw the franchise handed over to London Weekend Television). Effectively half-owned by ABC’s parent company, it was now the effective originating company for “The Avengers”.

Replacing the US espionage caper-adventure series “I Spy”, the run of 33 filmed colour episodes starring Patrick Macnee and Linda Thorson aired (in monochrome) generally weekly on Wednesdays from 25 September 1968 to 21 May 1969, after which it was replaced by the US espionage adventure series “It Takes a Thief”. One episode – “My Wildest Dream” – was apparently deemed unsuitable for broadcast in pre-watershed slots by the ITA and so was screened in a later slot on Monday 7 April 1969 (a slot normally used for films). There were also several pre-empts for Christmas programming and the following networked shows:
Wed 09/04/1969 Max
Wed 07/05/1969 Frankie Howerd at the Poco a Poco

Now operating a colour service, from 1970 Thames proceeded to screen episodes from Series Five. These had been shown previously in the London region by Rediffusion, while ABC had aired these on its split region. The repeats were placed in late-night slots.

The first episode screened in a slot normally used for films:
Mon 31/08/1970 22:30 A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station

A sustained run commenced in a slot previously used for films:
Thu 17/09/1970 23:00 Mission... Highly Improbable
Thu 24/09/1970 23:00 From Venus with Love
Thu 01/10/1970 23:00 Return of the Cybernauts
Thu 08/10/1970 23:00 The Fear Merchants
Thu 15/10/1970 23:00 You Have Just Been Murdered
Thu 22/10/1970 [documentary: The Edge of Conflict]
Thu 29/10/1970 23:00 The Positive-Negative Man
Thu 05/11/1970 23:00 The Bird Who Knew Too Much
Thu 12/11/1970 23:00 Murdersville
Thu 19/11/1970 23:20 The Winged Avenger
Thu 26/11/1970 23:00 Dead Man's Treasure
Thu 03/12/1970 23:00 The Superlative Seven
Thu 10/12/1970 23:00 The Joker

Thu 14/01/1971 23:00 The £50,000 Breakfast
Thu 21/01/1971 23:00 Escape in Time
Thu 28/01/1971 23:00 The See-Through Man
Thu 04/02/1971 [European Figure Skating Championships]
Thu 11/02/1971 23:00 Never, Never Say Die
Thu 18/02/1971 23:00 Epic
Thu 25/02/1971 [International Sports Special]
Thu 04/03/1971 23:00 The Living Dead
Thu 11/03/1971 23:00 Something Nasty in the Nursery
Thu 18/03/1971 23:00 The Joker
The slot was then given to the Thames’ thriller anthology “Shadows of Fear”.

As yet, there’s no trace of a repeat of “The Hidden Tiger”.

Repeats of Series Six commenced in similar late-night slots as a replacement for repeats of “Callan” (under the title “The Callan Saga”) a few months later:
Thu 29/07/1971 23:15 The Forget-Me-Knot
Thu 05/08/1971 23:00 Split!
Thu 12/08/1971 23:05 Noon Doomsday
Thu 19/08/1971 23:00 Have Guns - Will Haggle
Thu 26/08/1971 23:00 They Keep Killing Steed
This run was replaced by “The Day Before Yesterday”.

A single episode was screened as a replacement for the discussion show “Something to Say”:
Thu 29/06/1972 23:30

The Series Six repeats then continued as a late-night replacement for “Something to Say”:
Thu 20/07/1972 23:00 The Rotters
Thu 27/07/1972 23:00 Killer
Thu 03/08/1972 23:00 My Wildest Dream
Thu 10/08/1972 23:00 Super Secret Cypher Snatch
Thu 17/08/1972 [York Golf Festival]
Thu 24/08/1972 23:00 Requiem
Thu 31/08/1972 23:10 The Curious Case of the Countless Clues
Thu 07/09/1972 23:20 All Done With Mirrors
Thu 14/09/1972 23:00 Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40?
Thu 21/09/1972 [Wills Open Golf Tournament]
Thu 28/09/1972 23:00 The Interrogators
The slot was then given back to “Something to Say”.

Over a year later, the Series Six repeats continued in an afternoon slot, effectively as a replacement for repeats of the ATV film adventure series “The Saint”:
Tue 22/01/1974 15:30 The Morning After
Tue 29/01/1974 15:30 Wish You Were Here
Tue 05/02/1974 [Whicker in Grenada]
Tue 12/02/1974 15:30 Stay Tuned

ATV LONDON

The weekend franchise for London was a key region that was vital for the wider broadcast of “The Avengers”. ATV London was reluctant to take a series such as “The Avengers” from a competitor and screen it at primetime when they had their own product – notably “Theatre 70” which most other regions screened on Saturdays instead of “The Avengers”. At the end of “Theatre 70”, the slot was to be taken by a new ATV newspaper drama called “Deadline Midnight” from 11 March 1961. It was agreed between ATV and ABC that “Deadline Midnight” and “The Avengers” would be taken by both major broadcasters and alternate on a fortnightly basis.

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing “Theatre 70” and alternating with “Deadline Midnight”, 13 episodes were shown fortnightly from 18 March to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ABC from 15 April), after which “Deadline Midnight” continued in a later slot while “The Avengers” was effectively replaced by the ATV filmed national security series “Ghost Squad”. Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the last four episodes were relayed from ABC from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to “The Pursuers” in the New Year.

SERIES TWO
Effectively replacing “Out of this World”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September to 29 December 1962 (relayed from ABC from 20 October). At New Year, the slot was changed; the Saturday placing was given to the ABC science-fiction serial “Dimension of Fear”, and “The Avengers” replaced “Ghost Squad” (now on tape) on Sundays from 6 January to 3 March 1963. There was then another schedule change two months later when “The Avengers” swapped places with ATV’s GP drama “24-Hour Call” and moved back to Saturdays (relayed from ABC) from 9 to 23 March 1963, after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964, after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

From 1964, “The Avengers” moved to a weekday placing in London and was thus screened by Rediffusion. As such, ATV London never repeated any episodes of “The Avengers”.

SOUTHERN

This was the franchise for the south and south east of England.

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing “Theatre 70” and alternating with “Deadline Midnight”, 13 episodes were shown fortnightly from 18 March to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ATV London for the first two weeks, then from ABC), after which “Deadline Midnight” continued in a later slot while “The Avengers” was effectively replaced by “Ghost Squad”. Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the last four episodes were relayed from ABC from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to “The Pursuers” in the New Year.

SERIES TWO
Effectively replacing “Out of this World”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September 1962 to 23 March 1963 (relayed from ATV London for the first three weeks, then from ABC), after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ATV London), after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

SERIES FOUR
Replacing the US journalist adventure drama “Hong Kong”, these episodes aired weekly on Thursdays from 30 September to 11 November 1965 (relayed from Rediffusion from 7 October to 4 November), and then – after swapping with a slot used for films (with the US soap “Peyton Place” being moved to an earlier placing) – continued on Saturdays from 20 November 1965 to 26 March 1966 (relayed from ABC to 15 January 1966 and on 12 and 26 March 1966), after which it was replaced by “Gideon’s Way”.

Effectively replacing Rediffusion’s espionage series “The Rat Catchers” (after one with ATV’s filmed adventure “The Baron), the first batch of episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) initially on Mondays from 9 to 30 January 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion). The Monday slot was then given back to “The Rat Catchers”, and “The Avengers” was moved to Wednesdays as a replacement for the ATV comedy-drama “Mrs Thursday” from 8 February to 8 March 1967; an episode scheduled for 15 March was replaced by Rediffusion’s police procedural “No Hiding Place” which continued in this slot. “The Avengers” then moved to Friday, again replacing “Mrs Thursday”, from 31 March to 12 May 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion to 5 May), after which the slot was given to “The Baron”.

Series Five resumed (in monochrome) as a replacement for “The Saint” on Fridays from 29 September to 17 November 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion from 20 October), after which the slot was again taken by “The Saint”.

SERIES SIX

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing “Theatre 70” and alternating with “Deadline Midnight”, 12 episodes were shown generally fortnightly from 18 March to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ATV London for the first week, then from ABC); an episode of the US private eye series “77 Sunset Strip” was screened on 1 April.

Sat 26/06/1971 21:00 Have Guns - Will Haggle
Sat 03/07/1971 21:00 They Keep Killing Steed
The slot was then taken by the LWT near-future drama “The Guardians”.

A one-off was shown during a run of the ATV comedy “The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine”:
Sat 01/01/1972 23:40 The Curious Case of the Countless Clues

Replacing “The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine”, the repeats resumed in a late-night slot on Saturdays:

ULSTER

Ulster was the franchise for Northern Ireland.

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing “Theatre 70” and alternating with “Deadline Midnight”, 12 episodes were shown generally fortnightly from 18 March to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ATV London for the first week, then from ABC); an episode of “77 Sunset Strip” was screened on 1 April. At the end of the run, “Deadline Midnight” continued in a later slot while “The Avengers” was effectively replaced by “Ghost Squad”. Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the last four episodes were relayed from ABC from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to movies (relayed from ABC).

SERIES TWO
Effectively replacing “Out of this World”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September to 29 December 1962 (relayed from ABC). At New Year, the slot was changed; the Saturday placing was given to “Dimension of Fear”, and “The Avengers” effectively replaced “Ghost Squad” on Sundays from 6 January to 3 March 1963 (relayed from ATV London). There was then another schedule change two months later when “The Avengers” swapped places with “24-Hour Call” and moved back to Saturdays (relayed from ABC) from 9 to 23 March 1963, after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ABC), after which it was replaced by movies.

BEST OF THE AVENGERS
Effectively replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these selected episodes from Series Two were relayed from ABC on Saturdays from 11 July 1964 until 15 August, after which it was replaced by “Sergeant Cork”.
Sat 11/07/1964 22:20 Mr Teddy Bear
Sat 18/07/1964 22:20 Intercrime
Sat 25/07/1964 22:20 The Decapod
Sat 01/08/1964 22:20 Bullseye
Sat 08/08/1964 22:20 Dead on Course
Sat 15/08/1964 22:20 The Mauritius Penny

SERIES FOUR
Replacing the US private detective series “Michael Shayne”, these episodes aired weekly on Fridays from 1 October 1965 to 25 March 1966 (generally relayed from Rediffusion); to allow for the Christmas schedule, “Too Many Christmas Trees” aired on Saturday 25 December (relayed from ABC) rather than Friday 24 December. The slot was then effectively taken by “Gideon’s Way”.

Ulster did not initially take Series Five at the start of 1967 in line with the other ITV regions. Instead, Series Four was repeated in a late-night slot on Fridays as a replacement for “The Untouchables”:
Fri 14/04/1967 23:05 The Town Of No Return
Fri 21/04/1967 23:05 The Grave-Diggers
Fri 28/04/1967 23:05 The Cybernauts [?]
Fri 05/05/1967 23:05 Death at Bargain Prices
Fri 12/05/1967 23:05 Castle De'Ath
Fri 19/05/1967 23:05 The Master Minds
Fri 26/05/1967 23:15 The Murder Market
Fri 02/06/1967 23:05 A Surfeit of H2O
Fri 09/06/1967 22:44 The Hour that Never Was
Fri 16/06/1967 22:44 Quick-Quick Slow Death
Fri 23/06/1967 22:44 Man-Eater of Surrey Green
Fri 30/06/1967 22:44 Two's a Crowd [?]
The slot was then taken by “And in the Morning…” and “The Avengers” was moved to a similar late slot on Thursdays previously used for movies:
Thu 06/07/1967 22:30 Room Without a View
Thu 13/07/1967 22:30 Silent Dust
Thu 20/07/1967 22:30 Small Game for Big Hunters

The slot was then given to the local programme “Flashpoint” and one further repeat aired at primetime on Friday bridging the week between “Sanctuary” and “Man in a Suitcase”:
Fri 29/09/1967 20:00 Honey for the Prince

SERIES FIVE
Replacing “The Saint”, and continuing the week after Series Four repeats, the episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) on Thursdays from 5 October 1967 to 14 March 1968, after which it was replaced by the US wartime action series “Garrison’s Gorillas”.

SERIES SIX
Effectively replacing “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, the episodes initially aired weekly (in monochrome) on Thursdays (relayed from ATV) from 26 September 1968 to 2 January 1969; during this time, the one remaining Series Four repeat was placed in the Christmas schedules with 26 December pre-empted:
Tue 24/12/1968 19:30 Too Many Christmas Trees

The series swapped places with a slot used for movies and moved to Fridays from 10 January to 23 May 1969 (relayed from ATV to 2 May); “The Rotters” was postponed on 25 April and screened on 16 May, and at the end of the run the slot was given to the US wartime espionage series “Jericho”.

Replacing repeats of “Danger Man”, Series Five was rerun in a late-night slot on Thursdays:
Thu 19/03/1970 23:00 From Venus with Love

Thu 16/07/1970 23:00 A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station

Thu 20/08/1970 23:00 Death's Door
Thu 27/08/1970 23:00 The £50,000 Breakfast
The slot was then given over to movies.

Replacing “The Name of the Game”, Series Six was repeated in a late-night slot on Thursdays with Ulster now operating a colour service:

Thu 01/06/1972 23:20
Thu 08/06/1972 23:20
For one week, the repeat aired on Monday – normally used for films – to allow for a Thursday pre-empt:
Mon 12/06/1972 22:35
Thu 15/06/1972 [Tennis]
Thu 22/06/1972 23:20

WESTWARD

Westward was the franchise for the south west of England and launched during Series One on 29 April 1961.

SERIES ONE
Upon launch, the series alternated with “Deadline Midnight”. 10 episodes were shown fortnightly from 29 April to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ABC). At the end of the run, “Deadline Midnight” continued in a later slot while “The Avengers” was effectively replaced by “Ghost Squad”. Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the last four episodes were relayed from ABC from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to the ATV filmed adventure series “The Four Just Men”.

SERIES TWO
Effectively replacing “Out of this World”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September to 29 December 1962 (relayed from ABC). At New Year, the slot was changed; the Saturday placing was given to “Dimension of Fear”, and “The Avengers” effectively replaced “Ghost Squad” on Sundays from 6 January to 3 March 1963 (relayed from ATV London). There was then another schedule change two months later when “The Avengers” swapped places with “24-Hour Call” and moved back to Saturdays (relayed from ABC) from 9 to 23 March 1963, after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ATV London until 16 November and then ABC), after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

SERIES FOUR
Replacing movies, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 2 October 1965 to 26 March 1966 (generally relayed from ABC), after which it was replaced by “Redcap”.

SERIES FIVE
Effectively replacing “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, these episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) initially on Fridays from 13 January to 10 March 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion). This slot was then given to “No Hiding Place” and “The Avengers” moved to Wednesdays as a replacement for “Hong Kong” (although “Hong Kong” aired on 22 March) from 15 March to 12 April 1967.

Effectively replacing “Man in a Suitcase”, a further six episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) on Fridays from 5 January to 9 February 1968, after which the slot was given to “The Saint”.

Replacing “Garrison’s Gorillas”, it was planned to air the remaining five episodes on Wednesdays from 10 July to 14 August 1968, with one pre-empt:
Wed 31/07/1968 Max
However, the industrial dispute meant that the last two episodes did not air and were replaced by “I Spy” from the national service.

When the strike was resolved, Series Four repeats began in a late-night Thursdays slot:
Thu 22/08/1968 23:00 Quick-Quick Slow Death
Thu 29/08/1968 23:00 A Touch of Brimstone
Thu 05/09/1968 23:00 How to Succeed… at Murder
Thu 12/09/1968 23:00 Castle De'Ath
Thu 19/09/1968 23:00 The Danger Makers
This slot was then given to the Thames chat show “The Eamonn Andrews Show”.

SERIES SIX
Replacing the US Western “Custer”, these episodes aired weekly on Thursdays (in monochrome) from 3 October 1968 to 2 January 1969 (relayed from ATV); there was one week’s pre-empt:
Thu 26/12/1968 [Christmas schedule]

The series swapped places with a slot used for movies and moved to Fridays from 10 January to 28 February 1969 (relayed from ATV), after which it was replaced by “The Name of the Game”.

Replacing movies, the series resumed on Saturdays from 17 May to 5 July 1969, after which it was again replaced by “The Name of the Game”.

Effectively replacing “The Champions”, the final four episodes aired on Wednesdays from 30 July to 20 August 1968, after which the slot was filled by “Department S”.

Replacing “The Name of the Game”, Series Four began repeats in a late-night slot on Mondays:
Sun 12/07/1970 23:15 The Town of No Return
Sun 19/07/1970 23:15 The Grave-Diggers
Sun 26/07/1970 23:15 The Cybernauts

Sun 15/11/1970 23:15 A Sense of History
Sun 22/11/1970 23:15 Too Many Christmas Trees
The slot was then taken by “Court Martial”.

The repeats resumed as a replacement for the LWT suspense anthology “Tales of Unease” late on Mondays, possibly starting with a remaining Series Four repeat before moving onto Series Five:
Mon 01/02/1971 23:02
Mon 08/02/1971 23:02 From Venus with Love
Mon 15/02/1971 23:02 The Fear Merchants

Mon 01/03/1971 ??
Mon 08/03/1971 23:16 The Bird Who Knew Too Much

Mon 10/05/1971 23:03
Mon 17/05/1971 23:03 The Superlative Seven

Mon 07/06/1971 [Tennis]

Mon 26/07/1971 23:03 Something Nasty in the Nursery
Mon 02/08/1971 23:17 The Joker
In the midst of these repeats, “Return of the Cybernauts” apparently received its first broadcast on Monday 9 August 1971.
Mon 16/08/1971 23:03 Death's Door
Mon 23/08/1971 23:03 The £50,000 Breakfast

Mon 20/09/1971 [??]
Mon 27/09/1971 22:32 You Have Just Been Murdered
The other previously unbroadcast episode “Murdersville” apparently received its debut on Monday 4 October 1971.
Mon 11/10/1971 23:03 Mission... Highly Improbable
The repeats then apparently continued into Series Six:
Mon 18/10/1971 23:03 The Forget-Me-Knot [?]

Mon 13/12/1971 23:03 Legacy of Death
The series was effectively replaced by “The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine” in the New Year.

A single repeat replaced “The Big Match” for one week:
Sun 14/05/1972 14:00

Further repeats then effectively replaced “Star Soccer” across the summer:

SCOTTISH

Scottish TV was the franchise for Central Scotland.

SERIES ONE
Effectively replacing the ATV sitcom “If the Crown Fits…”, the series alternated with “Deadline Midnight”. 7 episodes were shown fortnightly from 10 June to 2 September 1961 (relayed from ABC). At the end of the run, “Deadline Midnight” continued in a later slot while “The Avengers” was effectively replaced by “Ghost Squad”. The later episodes were not scheduled.

SERIES TWO
Unlike the other regions, Scottish did not schedule Series Two as part of the Autumn 1962 season. Effectively replacing the US police procedural “Naked City”, 12 episodes aired weekly on Thursdays from 11 April to 27 June 1963, before the slot was returned to “Naked City”.

SERIES THREE
Effectively replacing “The Human Jungle”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ABC from 16 November), after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

SERIES FOUR
Replacing the US wartime adventure series “Combat!”, these episodes aired weekly on Tuesdays from 28 September 1965 to 22 March 1966, after which it was replaced by movies.

SERIES FIVE
Replacing movies, these episodes initially aired weekly (in monochrome) initially on Saturdays from 14 January to 18 March 1967 (relayed from ABC), after which the slot was given to “Danger Man”.

Replacing “Haunted”, further episodes aired on Saturdays from 7 October to 18 November 1967 (on a delayed relay from ABC), and was then replaced by movies.

Replacing movies, the remaining episodes aired on Fridays from 8 December 1967 to 19 January 1968, after which the slot was given to “Public Eye”.

SERIES SIX
Replacing movies, the episodes had a delayed start compared to the Autumn 1968 debut in most regions and aired weekly on Thursdays (in monochrome) from 2 January to 1 May 1969, after which the series was replaced by “The Champions”.

Now operating a colour service, three further episodes were scheduled at lunchtime on Sundays from 6 to 20 January 1974, replacing “The Saint” and replaced by the US police procedural “Adam-12”.

Further isolated episodes ran late-night on Friday 8 February 1974 and at lunchtime on Saturday 4 May 1974.

Replacing films, six further episodes aired late-night on Fridays from 18 October to 6 December 1974 (with pre-empts on 1 and 15 November), before the slot was given to the Hammer anthology “Journey to the Unknown”.

A further episode was scheduled late-night on Sunday 26 January 1975.

As such, Scottish Television did not apparently carry any repeats of “The Avengers”.

BORDER

Border was the franchise for the England/Scotland border areas, and came on air during Series One on 1 September 1961.

SERIES ONE
On the second day of broadcasting, Border carried “Kill the King” (relayed from ATV) after which the slot was effectively taken by “Ghost Squad”.

GRAMPIAN

Grampian was the franchise for the north of Scotland, and came on air during the break in broadcast of Series One on 30 September 1961.

SERIES ONE
Replacing “Deadline Midnight”, the last four episodes were relayed from ABC from 9 to 30 December 1961, with the slot given over to films relayed from ABC.

SERIES TWO
Effectively replacing “Out of this World”, three episodes aired weekly initially on Saturdays from 29 September to 20 October 1962 (relayed from ATV London); an edition of the US police procedural “M Squad” was scheduled on 13 October. The Saturday slot was then given to the US private eye series "Staccato” (aka “Johnny Staccato”). After a gap of two months, 13 more episodes effectively replaced the US sitcom “I Love Lucy” on Sundays from 6 January to 31 March 1963 (generally relayed from ATV London), and replaced by “24-Hour Call”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing the ATV filmed adventure “Man of the World”, these episodes aired weekly initially on Sundays from 29 September to 10 November 1963. The series then swapped slots with the ATV filmed anthology "Espionage” and ran on Saturdays from 16 November 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ABC), after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

SERIES FOUR
Replacing movies, these episodes aired initially weekly on Saturdays from 2 October to 13 November 1965 (relayed from ABC to 23 October).

Replacing “Seaway”, these episodes were aired (in monochrome) on Wednesdays from 27 September 1967 to 6 March 1968; “Scottish PlaybilL” pre-empted the series on 29 November. With one episode outstanding, two repeats from Series Four were then scheduled:
Wed 13/03/1968 20:00 The Master Minds [possibly not screened]
Wed 20/03/1968 20:00 Silent Dust
The slot was then taken by “Virgin of the Secret Service” and the series effectively moved to a late-night slot on Tuesdays effectively as a replacement for the ATV drama “Market in Honey Lane” from 2 April to 2 July.

CHANNEL

Channel Television serving the Channel Islands was launched on 1 September 1962 – i.e. shortly before Series Two. Much of its schedule was effectively relaying programmes from Westward.

SERIES TWO
These episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September to 29 December 1962 (relayed from ABC). At New Year, the slot was changed; the Saturday placing was given to “Dimension of Fear”, and “The Avengers” effectively replaced “Ghost Squad” on Sundays from 6 January to 3 March 1963 (relayed from ATV London). There was then another schedule change two months later when “The Avengers” swapped places with “24-Hour Call” and moved back to Saturdays (relayed from ABC) from 9 to 23 March 1963, after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (relayed from ATV London until 28 December and then ABC), after which it was replaced by “The Protectors”.

SERIES FOUR
Replacing movies, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 2 October 1965 to 26 March 1966 (generally relayed from ABC), after which it was replaced by “Redcap”.

SERIES FIVE
Effectively replacing “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, these episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) initially on Fridays from 13 January to 10 March 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion). This slot was then given to “No Hiding Place” and “The Avengers” moved to Wednesdays as a replacement for “Hong Kong” (although “Hong Kong” aired on 22 March) from 15 March to 12 April 1967.

Effectively replacing “Man in a Suitcase”, a further six episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) on Fridays from 5 January to 9 February 1968, after which the slot was given to “The Saint”.

Replacing “Garrison’s Gorillas”, it was planned to air the remaining five episodes on Wednesdays from 10 July to 14 August 1968, with one pre-empt:
Wed 31/07/1968 Max
However, the industrial dispute meant that the last two episodes did not air and were replaced by “I Spy” from the national service.

When the strike was resolved, Series Four repeats began in a late-night Thursdays slot:
Thu 22/08/1968 23:00 Quick-Quick Slow Death
Thu 29/08/1968 23:00 A Touch of Brimstone
Thu 05/09/1968 23:00 How to Succeed… at Murder

Thu 19/09/1968 23:00 The Danger Makers
This slot was then given to the Thames chat show “The Eamonn Andrews Show”.

SERIES SIX
Replacing the US Western “Custer”, these episodes aired weekly on Thursdays (in monochrome) from 3 October 1968 to 2 January 1969 (relayed from ATV); there was one week’s pre-empt:
Thu 26/12/1968 [Christmas schedule]

The series swapped places with a slot used for movies and moved to Fridays from 10 January to 28 February 1969 (relayed from ATV), after which it was replaced by “The Name of the Game”.

Replacing movies, the series resumed on Saturdays from 17 May to 5 July 1969, after which it was again replaced by “The Name of the Game”.

Effectively replacing “The Champions”, the final four episodes aired on Wednesdays from 30 July to 20 August 1968, after which the slot was filled by “Department S”.

Replacing “The Name of the Game”, Series Four began repeats in a late-night slot on Mondays; the episode titles are taken from Westward listings, and it is possible that the Channel transmissions varied from these:
Sun 12/07/1970 23:15 The Town of No Return
Sun 19/07/1970 23:15 The Grave-Diggers
Sun 26/07/1970 23:15 The Cybernauts

Sun 15/11/1970 23:15 A Sense of History
Sun 22/11/1970 23:15 Too Many Christmas Trees
The slot was then taken by “Court Martial”.

The repeats resumed as a replacement for the LWT suspense anthology “Tales of Unease” late on Mondays, possibly starting with a remaining Series Four repeat before moving onto Series Five:
Mon 01/02/1971 23:02
Mon 08/02/1971 23:02 From Venus with Love

WWN

Wales West and North was the franchise for north and west Wales and began broadcasting just before Series Two on 14 September 1962.

SERIES TWO
These episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 29 September to 29 December 1962 (relayed from ABC). At New Year, the slot was changed; the Saturday placing was given to “Dimension of Fear”, and “The Avengers” replaced “Casebook” on Fridays from 11 January to 1 March 1963. There was then another schedule change two months later when “The Avengers” was replaced by the local programme “Personal Scrapbook” on Fridays and moved back to Saturdays to replaced “24-Hour Call” from 9 to 23 March 1963 (relayed from ABC), after which the slot was taken by “The Human Jungle”.

SERIES THREE
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 28 September 1963 to 21 March 1964 (generally relayed from ABC), after which it was replaced by movies (from ATV London)

REDIFFUSION

Rediffusion was the weekday London broadcaster, sharing the territory with ATV London. All the episodes up to Spring 1964 had aired at weekends via ATV London, but the series was then picked up by Rediffusion for weekday placings.

The series then moved to Fridays – replacing the US horror sitcom “The Addams Family” and Granada’s magazine “Cinema” – from 12 November 1965 to 25 March 1966, with “Too Many Christmas Trees” scheduled for Thursday 23 December to allow for a pre-empt on Friday 24 December. At the end of the series, the slot was effectively taken over by “Redcap”.

The series was effectively replaced by “Sanctuary”.

Replacing the ATV drama anthology “Love Story”, further new episodes aired (in monochrome) initially on Thursdays from 28 September to 12 October 1967, after which the series swapped slots with “Mrs Thursday” and moved to Fridays from 20 October to 17 November 1967, after which “Mrs Thursday” again returned to the Friday placing.

TELEDU CYMRU

After the collapse of WWN, TWW operated a split service of Teledu Cymru in north and west Wales.

BEST OF THE AVENGERS
Replacing “Sergeant Cork”, these selected episodes from Series Two were relayed from ABC on Saturdays from 11 July 1964 until 8 August, after which it was replaced by the ATV espionage national security thriller “GS5”.
Sat 11/07/1964 22:20 Mr Teddy Bear
Sat 18/07/1964 22:20 Intercrime
Sat 25/07/1964 22:20 The Decapod

SERIES FOUR
Replacing movies, seven episodes aired weekly on Saturdays from 2 October to 13 November 1965 (generally relayed from ABC, or TWW from 30 October), after which it was replaced by the local programme “Hwb I'r Galon” and “Mad Movies” for four weeks. “The Avengers” resumed on Saturdays from 18 December 1965 to 2 April 1966 (relayed from ABC apart from the final week from TWW); on 26 February, the series was pre-empted by a rescheduled episode of “The Rat Catchers”, and at the end of the run the slot was taken over by “The Fugitive”. Replacing the filmed anthology “Douglas Fairbanks Presents”, the four unbroadcast episodes were aired in a late-night slot on Tuesdays from 12 April to 3 May 1966, after which the slot was taken over by the Canadian comedy “Wayne and Shuster Take a Look”.

SERIES FIVE
Replacing “The Baron”, the first batch of episodes aired weekly (in monochrome) initially on Wednesdays from 11 January to 1 February 1967 (relayed from Rediffusion). The Wednesday slot was then given to “The Rat Catchers”, and “The Avengers” was moved to Fridays, effectively as a replacement for “The Saint” from 10 February to 7 April 1967; “The Rat Catchers” pre-empted the slot on 3 March and one Series Four repeat was scheduled during the run on Good Friday:
Fri 24/03/1967 20:00 The Cybernauts
At the end of the run, the slot was returned to “The Saint”.

Replacing movies, Series Five continued on Sundays from 1 to 22 October 1967 (relayed from TWW), after which the slot was given to “The Saint”.

With several Series Five episodes still unbroadcast, further Series Four repeats were scheduled as a replacement for “The Saint” in an early-evening Sunday slot (relayed from TWW):
Sun 10/12/1967 19:25
Sun 17/12/1967 19:25
Sun 24/12/1967 [Christmas schedule]
Sun 31/12/1967 19:25

Sun 21/01/1968 19:25
Sun 28/01/1968 19:25
Sun 04/02/1968 19:25
The slot was then used for movies.

Replacing movies, the Series Four repeats returned in the same slot a month later (relayed from TWW):
Sun 10/03/1968 19:25
Sun 17/03/1968 19:25
Sun 24/03/1968 19:25
Sun 31/03/1968 19:25

Sun 05/05/1968 19:25
Sun 12/05/1968 19:25
Sun 19/05/1968 19:25
At this juncture, TWW and Teledu Cymru ceased broadcasting and handed over to HTV.

HTV

Taking over the west of England and Welsh franchises, Harlech Television picked up from TWW and Teledu Cymru.

SERIES FIVE
HTV continued with new, previously unbroadcast episodes of Series Five in the same slot as the repeats of Series Four on Sundays (in monochrome) from 26 May to 14 July 1968. After this, there were two further Series Four repeats:
Sun 21/07/1968 19:25
Sun 28/07/1968 19:25
After this, the slot was due to be given to films (from LWT).

SERIES SIX
Replacing “Peyton Place”, these episodes initially aired on Thursdays (in monochrome) from 26 September 1968 to 2 January 1969 (relayed from ATV); there was one pre-empt:
Thu 26/12/1968 [Christmas schedule]
Replaced by films (from ATV) on Thursdays, the series then moved to Fridays – effectively replacing “Peyton Place” – from 10 January to 2 May 1969 (relayed from ATV); “The Rotters”, scheduled for 25 April, was not broadcast, and the slot was then given to “It Takes a Thief”. The post-watershed episode “My Wildest Dream” was then aired in a late-night slot on Sunday 4 May in a slot normally used for arts documentaries, and was followed by “The Rotters” the following week. “Bizarre” was scheduled for Friday 30 May in a one week gap between repeats of “The Human Jungle” and the LWT police serial “The Gold Robbers”, but was screened in place of a “Danger Man” repeat late-night on Monday 2 June.

Replacing a season of “Sherlock Holmes” films, Series Five was repeated late night on Mondays, initially in monochrome and on HTV West only; some of these had only previously aired on TWW and Teledu Cymru.

From this point, HTV West operated a colour service:

Mon 13/04/1970 22:30 Something Nasty in the Nursery
Mon 20/04/1970 22:30 The Joker
From this point, the repeats were carried on both HTV West and HTV Wales (colour):

Mon 11/05/1970 22:30 The £50,000 Breakfast

YORKSHIRE

Yorkshire Television began broadcasting on 29 July 1968 to a newly defined territory which was effectively half of the previous north of England franchise operated by ABC North at weekends and Granada during the week.

Yorkshire planned to start its new schedule with late-night airings of Series Four episodes that had not been previously repeated on ABC North, but immediately fell foul of the industrial action that forced most of the ITV network into a networked national service for around a fortnight:
Sun 04/08/1968 23:10 The Town of No Return [presumably not broadcast]
Sun 11/08/1968 [The Auction Game – networked service]
Sun 18/08/1968 [The Auction Game – networked service]
Sun 25/08/1968 23:10 A Touch of Brimstone
Sun 01/09/1968 23:10 What The Butler Saw
Sun 08/09/1968 23:10 The House that Jack Built
Sun 15/09/1968 23:10 Castle De'Ath
Sun 22/09/1968 23:10 The Danger Makers
The slot was then given over to ATV’s talk show “Tonight with Dave Allen”.

SERIES SIX
Replacing “Mission: Impossible”, these episodes were aired (in monochrome) initially on Wednesdays from 25 September to 23 October 1968 (relayed from Thames), after which the slot was given to “The Champions” and the series was moved to Fridays – where it replaced movies – from 1 November 1968 to 17 January 1969 (sometimes relayed from ATV). It was then replaced by “The Name of the Fame” and moved to Saturdays in place of movies from 25 January to 17 May, after which the slot was returned to “The Champions” (which had also aired on 12 April 1969). During this time, the collapse of the Emley Moor transmitter meant that “Who Was That Man I Saw You With?”, scheduled for 22 March, was rescheduled to 10 May. The post-watershed episode “My Wildest Dream” then aired late-night on Sunday 31 May, a slot normally used for films.

Replacing the US espionage series “The Man Who Never Was”, Series Six repeats – now screened in colour (apparently the first colour UK screenings of “The Avengers”) – commenced on Tuesdays in a primetime slot:
Tue 16/12/1969 21:00 The Forget-Me-Knot
Tue 23/12/1969 21:00 Game
Tue 30/12/1969 21:00 Super Secret Cypher Snatch
In the New Year, this slot was given to Yorkshire’s new agony column drama “Kate”, and the repeats were moved to late on Saturdays to replace movies:
Sat 10/01/1970 23:10 Killer
Sat 17/01/1970 [Saturday Night Theatre]
Sat 24/01/1970 23:10 The Rotters
Sat 31/01/1970 23:10 My Wildest Dream
Sat 07/02/1970 23:10 You'll Catch Your Death
Sat 14/02/1970 23:10 Love All
Sat 21/02/1970 23:10 Split!
Sat 28/02/1970 23:10 Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40?
Sat 07/03/1970 23:10 False Witness
Sat 14/03/1970 23:10 All Done With Mirrors
Sat 21/03/1970 23:10 Legacy of Death
Sat 28/03/1970 23:10 Noon Doomsday
Sat 04/04/1970 23:10 Look - (stop me if you've heard this one) But There Were These Two Fellers...
The slot was then taken by “Saturday Night Theatre”, and the repeats moved to late on Thursdays to replace the US historical anthology “Saga of Western Man”:
Thu 09/04/1970 23:00 Have Guns - Will Haggle
Thu 16/04/1970 23:00 They Keep Killing Steed
Thu 23/04/1970 23:00 The Interrogators
Thu 30/04/1970 23:10 Invasion of the Earthmen
The slot was then reallocated to Yorkshire’s rural police drama “Parkin’s Patch”.

After coverage of “World Cup 70”, the Series Six repeats resumed late on Thursdays:
Thu 25/06/1970 23:00 Who Was That Man I Saw You With?
Thu 02/07/1970 23:00 Homicide and Old Lace
Thu 09/07/1970 23:00 Thingumajig
Thu 16/07/1970 23:00 Pandora
Thu 23/07/1970 23:00 Requiem
Thu 30/07/1970 [The Engelbert Humperdinck Show]
Thu 06/08/1970 [The Engelbert Humperdinck Show]

ATV

The franchise reorganisation of July 1968 meant that ATV ceased to operate as ATV Midlands on weekdays and ATV London at the weekends and now served the Midlands for the whole week, as such taking on the weekend schedules from ABC Midlands.

SERIES SIX
Replacing “The Saint”, the episodes aired (in monochrome) on Thursdays from 26 September 1968 to 2 January 1969, with a pre-empt for Christmas schedules on 26 December; the series then swapped slots with movies to Friday evenings from 10 January to 2 May 1969, during which time ATV was blacked out by industrial action on 25 April and instead screened a film relayed from LWT.

With three episodes unscreened, the channel launched into repeats, placing movies in the Friday slot and scheduling Series Four repeats not screened by ABC Midlands at primetime on Saturdays in place of films:
Sat 10/05/1969 20:30 The Town of No Return
Sat 17/05/1969 20:30 Castle De'Ath
Sat 24/05/1969 20:30 Too Many Christmas Trees
Sat 31/05/1969 20:30 The Danger Makers
Sat 07/06/1969 20:30 Honey for the Prince [replacing A Touch of Brimstone]
Sat 14/06/1969 20:30 What The Butler Saw
Sat 21/06/1969 20:30 The House that Jack Built
Sat 28/06/1969 19:00 A Sense Of History
Sat 05/07/1969 20:30 How to Succeed… at Murder
Sat 12/07/1969 21:00 A Touch Of Brimstone
The repeats then continued into Series Five:
Sat 19/07/1969 21:03 From Venus with Love
Sat 26/07/1969 21:00 The Fear Merchants
Sat 02/08/1969 21:00 Escape in Time
Sat 09/08/1969 21:00 The See-Through Man
Sat 16/08/1969 21:00 The Bird Who Knew Too Much
Sat 23/08/1969 21:00 The Winged Avenger
Sat 30/08/1969 21:00 The Living Dead
Sat 06/09/1969 21:00 The Hidden Tiger
Sat 13/09/1969 21:00 The Correct Way to Kill
The slot was then returned to films.

Two of the previously unshown Series Six episodes were then screened in late-night slots: “The Rotters” replacing the ATV soap “Honey Lane” for one week on Thursday 9 October 1969 and the post-watershed “My Wildest Dream” (in colour) on Saturday 27 December in a slot normally used for “I Spy”.

Replacing “Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)”, the Series Five repeats continued in primetime on Fridays:

Fri 27/03/1970 19:30 The Positive-Negative Man
Fri 03/04/1970 19:30 Mission... Highly Improbable
The slot was then given over to repeats of “The Champions”.
