1974

Notes:

The usual time for shows was 4.05-4.50 on Saturday afternoons. There was also a Thursday afternoon slot, usually airing from 1-1.30. This did not air every week, with 'Crown Court' or 'Indoor League' filling the slot on occasion. From September the Thursday slot was replaced by a late night Tuesday evening slot.

The taping schedule was relatively haphazard at this point.
