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 Harlech Television (HTV), the company which owned the broadcast franchise for Wales and the West of England region.

Colour Transmissions: In the HTV region, the switch to colour was staggered: the Wenvoe transmitter, serving the HTV Wales area, switched over on Monday 6th April 1970, while the Mendip transmitter, which provided signals for the HTV West area, started transmitting in colour from Saturday 30th May 1970. The first episode to be transmitted in colour in both HTV areas was the sixteenth in their run, It's Supposed to be Thicker Than Water.

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