Friday 5 September 1975 — MELBOURNE

Number 96‘s infamous ‘bomb-blast’ episode which saw four characters written out of the series – the list of those characters who died were not known until the following Monday’s episode.

This particular week also happens to be school term holidays in Victoria so ABC are not showing any schools programs and HSV7 are screening movie double-features during the daytime

40 years since Number 96 was bombed [2015]
