Space 1999 In Northern Ireland

UNITED KINGDOM

UTV (Ulster TV)

UTV is the ITV channel covering Northern Ireland. It is widely viewed in the Republic Of Ireland. It started showing Space: 1999 in September 1975 in a prime time Thursday slot along with the rest of the ITV network, but stopped at Christmas and did not resume until July 1976.

The listings for War Games on both 11 September and 25 September and Earthbound on both 4 December and 11 Decmeber are probably wrong; either another episode was shown on one of those dates, or the show was pre-empted by something else.

1976- 1977

A new run starts on Sunday afternoons at the end of October. It skips Christmas, and after one episode in the New Year weekend takes a break. It resumes at the end of January on Thursdays tea-time, before the national news. At the start of March it ceded to Little House on the Prairie, and after Easter was bumped up to a prime time evening slot on Friday. In June it shifted again, to Saturday tea-time. It disappeared for most of July. In August it returned to the Thursday prime time slot, taking over from Charlie's Angels, but in September lost it to The New Avengers. In November it reappeared in a Friday slot, which it lost in December to General Hospital. One final odd episode appeared in January 1978.

At least 41 episodes were shown during this run, including the first run of Year 2 episodes (apparently mixed in with repeated Year 1 episodes).

It then had a good, almost uninterrupted run until July 1984, leaving only The Dorcons unshown- that appeared by itself one Thursday afternoon in January 1985. The unknown episodes are Black Sun, Ring Around the Moon, Missing Link and The Last Sunset.
