The episode details commence with broad
information applicable to the whole series, followed by a brief episode title list for
quick reference, and then details of individual episodes. A detailed explanation follows:
EPISODES: The number of episodes made. Details are given for any
variables, such as pilot episodes.
LENGTH: Episode length in minutes. Details are given when variations
to standard lengths occur. Length is expressed as intended for the timeslot - for

FORMAT: Technical standard,
i.e. in mono (b&w) or colour, on film,
videotape or kinescope.

RUNNING ORDER: There are usually three ways to list episodes in a
series - the order they are produced, the order they are meant to be screened, and the

screened. Theoretically they should be the same, but often they are not. Official
numbering is used in preference to airdate wherever known. Sometimes there are variations
in official running order from differing sources (for example, a network may have a
different 'official' order than the production company) - in these cases the most
plausible order is used.
NETWORK: Which network the series originally appeared on. There were four networks in Australian capital cities
during the period this site covers: Seven,
Nine, 0-Ten (all commercial) and the public-owned ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission).

Major supporting roles, but not regular cast members. Frequency of
appearance can vary greatly. If
they did not appear in all episodes, they are usually listed in the individual episode
entries as well. Minor support roles and recurring characters are
listed in the individual episode entries.
CREW: Crew members are listed here when applicable for the whole
series; otherwise they are listed under the individual episodes when known. Crew details
are usually limited to Scriptwriters, Directors and Producers.
