[Numbers in brackets denote a story's position in broadcast order.]
 
In the country of its birth‚ “Planet of the Apes” aired on CBS,
on Fridays between 20:00 - 21:00.
 
The UK airdates presented above are for the Granada Region, where the series was broadcast on Sundays between 19:25 - 20:25—with the exception of “Escape From Tomorrow‚” which aired between 19:55 and 20:55.
 
*It has often been stated that “The Liberator” did not receive a network airing in the USA, but this is not so. Starlog journalist Mark Phillips has determined from a study of Neilsen Ratings data that it was shown in some areas on December 6th—replacing the scheduled airing of “Up Above the World So High”—which was then shown two weeks later on December 20th.
