Thanks to the other contributors .I have added a few of the more obscure shows and not looked into the big ones like TOTPs RSG etc yet. They seem to have got through without any probs so should start appearing soon.
The Euro shows can be a bit of a problem as some don't seem to be listed at all and obviously people in the host country would have had the skeleton info the IMDB needs.
Another UK problem was 'Unforgettable' this was not networked IIRC and was shown all over the place at different times so I found it difficult to track down.
I didn't know that Channel 4 had (has?) regional variations.
Was it on CH4 in the first instant? I thought CH4 started in 1982?
Anyway i'll retire from this now before I put my foot in it again LOL. There are plenty of others with better knowledge who can help William on the IMDB.
You're right! There was an earlier series for Thames TV in 1981, but (as far as I know), none of these were repeated during C4's 1982/1983 run. To add to the confusion, a handful of the 1982/1983 shows were held over until 1986.
Here's one of the few Thames TV era shows that I've seen:
