Space 1999 In The Republic Of Ireland

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND (EIRE)

The state-owned channel RTE 1 broadcast Year 1 episodes from April to end September 1979. It should be noted that Irish viewers could generally receive broadcasts from UTV in Northern Ireland (which started showing Space 1999 in September 1975, and ran a few Year 2 episodes on Saturday mornings during the run), and HTV in Wales (which started in October 1975).

21 Year 1 episodes were shown. July 6 was pre-empted for Wimbledon tennis, August 10 for RDS horse show, August 24 for golf. From October it was replaced by Dusty's Trail and Battle of the Planets.
