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.
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.
