Israeli Television (IT)

During the years in which The Avengers and The New Avengers were first screened in Israel, there was just the one television station, the state-run Israeli Television. The channel was shared between Israeli Educational Television (which had commenced broadcasts in 1966) and the Israeli Broadcasting Authority (which launched regular public transmssions on 2nd May 1968, the 20th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence). Occasional colour transmissions commenced in the mid-1970s for special events such as the visit of the President of Egypt in 1977 and the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest, with a full colour service finally being introduced from 13th January 1982. The first broadcasts of The Avengers and The New Avengers would have been in monochrome.
