AUGUST 1979: Episodes 3193 – 3198

Click HERE to return to the main menu

 

A strike at ITV kept the channel off-air until from August 10 - October 24, 1979.

Some data on this page refers to “Production Office Paperwork”, which is direct from ATV TX logs.

 * There is a discrepancy between the ATV transmission log and other contemporary sources.

 

The log states that episode 3188 was broadcast on 23-07-79 despite there being a one day strike that blanked out the ITV network.

 

Contemporary news reports state that 3188 would be shown instead on the following day, 24-07-79.

 

ATV transmission logs show that 3189 was broadcast.

 

By 06-08-79 the records tally with each other.

Due to the strike on 23-07-79 – these TV Times listings are likely to have been out by “one” for a few weeks up to today! – This probably explains why today’s listing repeats that given for yesterday – as the lead time for printing the TV Times would not have allowed for corrections before now.
