Release dates for Eagle Riders episodes

The imdb page for the tv series "Eagle Riders" states that only 13 episodes ever aired in America during 1996, with the rest airing in Australia in 1997. Yet, all 65 episodes of the series are listed as having aired in America during 1996, something which is blatantly incorrect. I tried correcting the release dates for the 52 episodes that never aired in America, all with valid explanations as to why, yet all of my edits got rejected, since they supposedly couldn't be verified.


Well, most of the episodes of the series have recently been uploaded to Youtube. Here is one for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mnvX5ldQEc

Go to 4:25 in the video link and you will see the logo of Australian channel Network Ten, proving this episode aired in Australia. Episodes that aired in America during 1996 have also been uploaded to Youtube, and they do not feature the Channel Ten logo, which creates a distinction between the 13 episodes that aired in America and the 52 episodes that only aired in Australia.

As for evidence that it was airing in Australia in the year 1997, If you google "Eagle Riders" + "August 1997", "Eagle Riders" + "September 1997", "Eagle Riders" +" October 1997" or "Eagle Riders" + "November 1997" then archived TV listings from Australian newspapers will show up, which have Eagle Riders on them.

Hi JB -

If I understand correctly, episodes 1-13 were released in the US in 1996, and the remaining episodes, 14-65 were first released in 1997 in Australia, is that correct?

The airing dates were out of order in regards to the episode numbers. The first 4 episodes all aired in American syndication beginning on September 9, 1996. From there on however, it was all jumbled. For example, the fifth episode aired in Australia in 1997, but the sixth episode aired in America in 1996. Using information from the online videos is the only way to know when an episode originally aired

Hi JB -

I have reviewed the Release Date updates you initially submitted, and have now adjusted the dates accordingly to reflect the episodes released in 1997 in Australia.  Please take a look at the episode lists and let me know if there are any outstanding issues: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115162/episodes?year=1996
