The Avengers Series 6

Harlech operated across the old TWW and Teledu Cymru regions. Its service to these areas was more integrated than previously and regional variations (normally to screen programmes in Welsh in North Wales) normally amounted to a couple of hours a day. Since these variations never affected the transmission of The Avengers across the Harlech area, we have decided, for the sake of simplicity, to present the one page of information, which is accurate for both parts of the broadcasting area.

(i) This episode was shown in place of The Rotters, which was billed in TV Times magazine. Newspaper listings confirm this substitution. The Rotters was later rescheduled in the Harlech region on 25th April 1969 at 8.00pm, but it was again pre-empted. The episode finally aired on Harlech Television on Sunday 11th May 1969 at 10.20pm.

(ii) The episode Killer was scheduled for this date but was pre-empted, with Get-A-Way! shown in its place. Killer was finally broadcast in the Harlech region on 2nd May 1969.

(iii) Viewers tuning in to see Bizarre on Friday 30th May 1969 at 9.00pm (as advertised in TV Times) were informed that the episode would not be screened after all and would instead be transmitted on Monday 2nd June 1969 at 10.30pm. The reason for this last minute change are unclear.
