Below are scans from the Radio Times showing the débuts of Seasons 1 and 2.


  1. Pretty sure i saw dungeon at the heart of dawn,,not sure all season 3 was shown though for whatever reasons,but that one was i remember.

  2. I think the BBC dropped the cartoon and Season 3 was broadcast by Channel 4 instead but I can't be certain.

    I went up to the British Library last August and browsed through all their old copies of Radio Times to find the broadcast dates as I couldn't find them anywhere on the web. (Which is where I got the scans from.) Found Season 1 and 2 but not 3 and pretty sure I didn't skip the issues they were in.

  3. I would run home from school to get these episodes!! Amazing show!
