  • No episode was shown on 4th January 1967 due a strike at Granada Television. The strike began at 6.30pm on the 4th and was called in protest over an announcement by management that a bonus payment which had been made at Christmas would not be repeated in the forthcoming December. The strike lasted just one and half hours but it meant that Granada were unable to transmit that night's editions of University Challenge or Coronation Street to the ITV network.
  • TV Times synopsis: In which Ena is lost and Jack gives some good advice
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 6,000,000 homes (19th place - this low rating was explained by the BBC airing the comedy series Till Death Us Do Part directly against this episode).
