View Full Version : Any Flying Nun Collectors/Experts Here?
09-05-2005, 09:05 PM
I have just started recording this series and am wondering if the 1st episode originally ran as a 1 hour program or as 2 30 minute programs back to back. Judging by the credits it looks like it ran 1 hour (people who don't appear in the first half of the show are credited at the end), does anybody know for sure?

HERES THE GUIDE I HAVE FOR THE SHOW
notice sep 7 has two seperate shows listed as 1-1 and 1-2
and as part one and part twp
so probably two 30 minutes back to back would be a good guess
but----batman , bewitched, that girl, and peyton place all were on sep 7, 1967 as well
so when would that second show of flying nun have aired, since the scheule was already full with one 30 min show????
1st Season 1967 ABC 30 min
# 1- 1 7 Sep 67 The Flying Nun (1)
# 1- 2 7 Sep 67 The Flying Nun (2)
# 1- 3 14 Sep 67 The Convert
# 1- 4 21 Sep 67 Old Cars for New
# 1- 5 28 Sep 67 A Bell for San Tanco
# 1- 6 5 Oct 67 Fatal Hibiscus
# 1- 7 12 Oct 67 Flight of a Dodo Bird

According to The New York Times television section for the week of September 3rd, 1967, ABC aired The Flying Nun from 7:30PM-8:30PM, followed by Bewitched from 8:30PM-9:00PM, then That Girl from 9:00PM-9:30PM, then Peyton Place from 9:30PM-10:00PM and finally Good Company from 10:00PM-10:30PM. A college baseball game was aired from 10:30PM on, but that may have been a regional thing. Batman did not premiere until September 14th.
Additionally, a New York Times Article makes mention of the fact that upcoming episodes would be thirty minutes in length, not sixty minutes like the premiere. So, that makes me think it was a one-hour premiere, not two episodes strung back-to-back.

Thanks Loren, where is your ep guide from? The ones at epguides and tv.com are basically useless for sorting out 2-part episodes from longer, 1-part episodes. The guides for almost all of the shows on those sites are based on the current syndication format, not the original production format. Does anybody have a Sept. 7, 1967 tv guide they can refer to?

FWIW, I have a master VHS...it lists it as one episode. It does not have the "feel" of two episodes, either...

this one was from epguides
and i found other info in my 4 inch thick book prime time tv shows from 1949 to now
and now is 1992 in this case
