I don't have any info if the first episode of the Onedin Line was different from the first one in the series. Peter, Howard, Brian, Mary and Jessica were in it. Only Anne was played by Sheila Allen.
There´s a book about the work of Peter Graham Scott in which he tells that the whole first episode was remade. They weren´t aware it should become such a hit. Peter G. Scott was pleased he could ask Anne Stallybrass to do the character of Anne Onedin as he admired her already for a long time. Sheila Allen regretted afterwards she wasn´t able to do Anne´s role.
The tape is wiped as you say.
