- Although scheduled no episode was transmitted on 29th July due to a half-hour strike (starting at 7.30pm) by technicians at Granada Television. This was one of a series of incidents that occurred as part of the 1968 ITV Strike.
- Following the 1968 ITV franchise reshuffle, this was the first episode to be broadcast by Thames Television in London (who had succeeded Rediffusion) and Yorkshire Television who had taken the franchise east of the Pennines from Granada Television, the latter being upgraded to a seven day-a-week service west of the Pennines in recompense.

- No Viewing Figures were collected for this episode as the wildcat stoppages which built up towards the 1968 ITV Strike were gathering pace. The explanation from JICTAR was, "a list of the top twenty programmes, calculated on the normal homes-viewing basis, would contain many programmes which qualified for inclusion because they were screened at times when no alternative programmes were available for viewers."
