Me and my brother had to play merry hell with my mother to be allowed to stay up at night watching V: The Original Mini-Series back in the 1980's, and again for V: The Final Battle when that aired. We were just kids at the time, but we absolutely loved V to bits. However, neither my brother or I remember seeing this 19 episode TV series on UK television.... and we have both only viewed this series via this DVD set. Wikipedia lists this series as "a series that aired in the USA in 1984", but that is all it says on the matter.
Can anyone confirm if it did actually air here in the UK back in the 80's, and on what channel and roughly when? If it did, I'm left scratching my head as to how my brother and I only learned of its existence years later via the internet.
