Broadcaster:

TV One


By the time that The New Avengers was transmitted in New Zealand, the country's television service had become a national rather than a regional one. Hence, whereas there are four separate regional listings for the Series 4-6 episodes, The New Avengers received a nationwide broadcast on the TV One channel, and the information about these transmissions is presented on this one page.

(i) Due to the late switch to colour in New Zealand, which did not occur until 1973, The Eagle's Nest was the first Avengers episode to receive a colour transmission in the country. The colour Emma Peel episodes (Series 5) would be repeated, for the first time in colour, between the broadcast of Series 1 and 2 of The New Avengers (shown from 21st February to 23rd May 1978 on Tuesdays on TV One after 10.00pm).

(ii) The episode Gnaws was aired in an early morning slot as a 'filler' some months after the vast majority of Series 1 of The New Avengers had been transmitted.
