Hello Stan, welcome to the group.
There were 91 episodes spread over 8 series
broadcast originally from 1971 to 1980. If you have satellite or cable TV and
live in the UK the first two series are being shown on UK Drama
channel starting on Monday. These are also available commercially on DVD (or VHS
tape) check Amazon or eBay etc.
As for series 4 onwards these are not
available on tape or DVD commercially yet and I don't know if they ever
will be, which is a shame as there are so many good story lines as the saga
unfolds in the later episodes. The whole series was repeated on UK Gold about
1993-94 so there is a chance they will appear again one day. Members of this
list keep mailing the cable channel UK Drama asking for more of the series to be
shown (at least I hope they do) so who knows maybe we'll get another series or
two out of them.
I made a small website with some info and links to
other Onedin themed sites at: You
might find it interesting.
