As with the London edition of TV Times, the detailed synopses and credits of Year One shrink by the time of Year Two. Breakaway (shown Friday, 26 September 1975) has a "Big Season" tag (the promotional name of the ITV Autumn 1975 schedule). Apparently, Koenig is commander of the mission to Meta, and in the atomic explosion, half of the moon disintegrates. Although scheduled for 7:35pm, the premiere was actually an hour early, at 6:35pm.

The Last Sunset is the Sunday 30 July 1978 screening. According to this synopses, the series follows the occupants of a "stranded spaceship".

Granada was the first ITV region to show The Dorcons, on Sunday, 30 October 1977, here titled "Return Of The Dorcons" (the original script title, discarded before filming).
