Notes

Episode 1968 (11th February 1980) was wrongly labelled as being transmitted on 24th March 1980 on the DVD packaging and menu on the boxset's original release. This was corrected in the episode guide booklet which accompanied the slimline re-release, although the error on the menu screen remained.
