One more added this week - Rummage, from September 1978. Query. An episode titled Cadet was listed for 12 November 1973, but was never shown. Does anyone know why? All imdb says on the subject is that the episode was wiped by the BBC, no reason given. When I was researching Z Cars for the tvtome website I checked the newspapers for the following three days, but could find no reference to the non showing. Also there was nothing in the succeeding issues of The Radio Times. A trivial matter I know, but ut would be interesting to know the inside story.

A 'source at the BBC' has kindly seen your post and advises
Actually the episode was shown. It is not listed on the PasB record, but the timings for the other programmes on the PasB record indicate that it has been missed out, not that it was not transmitted. The BBC also has a daily transmission schedule, compiled by presentation, which shows that the episode did go out.
The Z Cars episode Cadet was wiped, as were many episodes of Z Cars – no special reason for it, just the BBC’s standard policy of wiping most VT programmes to reuse the tape.

I've just struck gold! There's a site within YouTube called 'The Good Old Days' that features a number of old programmes, including well over 120 episodes of Z Cars, 95 of which have not been available up to now. Magic! Check it out.
Thank you guys indeed, Jesus it takes all day just to scroll down! Looking forward to those Z cars and others, better get one of those cooler bags so I don't have to keep going back to the fridge. Thanks again!
