NOVEMBER 1979: Episodes 3204 – 3221

Click HERE to return to the main menu

 

Regular “ATV” TX Days: Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs

Episode Numbers on this page were calculated “backwards” from Episode 3235 (25-12-79). This is the famous “We Need a Little Christmas” sing-along that was released by Network DVD. It was very clearly designed as a Christmas Day episode.

 

Going “backwards” to October, it is possible that episode numbers are incorrect.

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