According to IMDb's guidelines it depends how the episodes were aired originally.

While the series was aired on three nights, I can't tell if each night was divided into two episodes.

"If the two parts are clearly separated (separate titles or a separate title card), then they should be entered as two separate episodes (with "Part 1/Part 2" on the end of the title if they don't have unique titles). If they are run together as one long episode on original airing (with one set of credits), then they should be treated as a single episode, even if they are separated in reruns, syndication, or other later airings."

Hi Filipe -

As Peter mentioned above, we will need to display the episodes on the site based on how they first aired, whether they aired as a six part series or a three part series.  Do you have any online sources to help verify that the series was originally released in three distinct episodes?

Hi Filipe -

Looking further, I found several additional sources that support a six-part release:

https://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/madiba/episodes/1020442/

https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/amzn1.dv.gti.f8acfec5-79c0-0578-977b-543062b9510d?ref_=imdbre...

and one source supporting a three-part release:

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/moviewatch/madiba/listings/

The network may be displaying the series as a three part series, but if the parts aired separately (meaning there were separate credit rolls between the parts) then we will need to retain the separate episode listings.  Until we identify more concrete sources that the series aired in three distinct parts, for now we will retain the series listing as-is.
