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.
To put the information in context,
we present a brief guide and map to the
ITV Regions as they were when The Avengers: Series 4 and 5
were aired – ITV Regions 1965-68.
If you are able to add accurately to the
information in even the smallest way, please get in
contact by email.
