Hullo,
The episode "Sex & Violence" of "Doomwatch" has a problematic airdate and I was wondering what the rules say about that.
Namely, it was originally scheduled for 21st August 1972 but was pulled. Then it was mistakenly scheduled for airing in 1993 when the series was rebroadcast but the mistake was realised (as the BBC wouldn't release it) and another episode "The Logicians" was aired instead of it. It was finally released to the public on 4th April 2016.
Now, my question is whether all three airdates should be listed on the page or just the real one (4th April 2016). Only that one was ever realised. The other two were both cancelled.

Best wishes,
Mateja

Hi there,

Thanks for your post Metaja.

Only the titles actual release date (the date it was made available for the public) should be attached to the title page on IMDb, speculative air dates which never occured shouldn't be listed at all.

You can submit an update to the release date via the Edit Page button listed at the bottom of the title, however please ensure to provide evidence to help our editors review this for you.

Thanks,

Joel
