The Avengers was very rarely networked across the whole of the United Kingdom when it was originally broadcast. Regional ITV companies would show the series on different nights, at different times. Only a couple of regions ABC Midlands and ABC North actually showed every episode of The Avengers, and some others showed episodes in wildly different orders. Consequently, it can be difficult to present a coherent broadcast guide that keeps all of the people happy all of the time.

While these variances may be frustrating when trying to produce a concrete broadcast guide, it is these very differences that makes looking at the broadcast variations interesting. In the Regional Variations sections across the site, The Avengers Declassified presents all regional transmission details for The Avengers and The New Avengers.

Series 6
The Tara King era presents possibly the wildest variation between regions, with some showing episodes in a vastly different order at different times of the year. Additionally, many of these episodes were broadcast several months earlier in the USA than they were in the UK.

To put the information in context, The Avengers Declassified presents a brief guide and map to the ITV Regions as they were when The Avengers: Series 6 were aired ITV Regions 1968-75.
