Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ)

RTÉ's transmissions of The New Avengers, particularly of Series 1, are recognised as the earliest worldwide transmissions of the series. They predate even the domestic transmissions in Great Britain and when The Eagle's Nest aired on Tuesday 28th September, the Irish press billed it as a "world premiere".
