Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) was not networked across the whole of the United Kingdom by the ITV regions when it was originally broadcast. This resulted in varying orders and days and times of transmission around the country. Consequently, it can be difficult to present a coherent broadcast guide. Here, we present regional transmission details for ATV, the company which owned the broadcast franchise for the Midlands region.

This information is incomplete. If you can accurately update the information for the ATV region, please do get in touch.

Colour Transmissions: The ATV region's Sutton Coldfield transmitter switched to colour on Saturday 15th November 1969. The first episode they transmitted in colour was the tenth in their run, Murder Ain't What It Used to Be.

(B/W*) = Due to the ITV Colour Strike (13th November 1970-8th February 1971), this episode would have been broadcast in monochrome only.
