dg writes: Clever, but not the programme I had in mind.
21) Play School

Okay then:
17) Juliet Bravo
2) Three of a Kind
Oh, I've worked out 22, 29 & 30 now,but I've already had my guess.
13)Nine o'clock news
30) Dr Who?
29) A Question Of Sport? (perhaps)
A different answer from Harry on (30)... my guess would be Discovery
22 The Two Ronnies
29) I think Question of Sport has always been made in Manchester. Maybe it's Game On?
29 : Wimbledon. :-) (Or Match Point, which would be very geeky)
Ah, sorry, Break Point, not Match Point.
I've got number 28!
4) Blackadder
I was hoping 29 was going to be "Are You Being Served"
On reflection, I think it was Happy Harry who got (30) right, not me
I was going to guess something relating to Space 1999 for 11, but that is clearly wrong.

Instead, I'll go for 28: is that "John Deed"? (although missing its "Judge")
23) That'll be Tenko.
28.Yes Prime Minister

That's because they were record breakingly difficult. Well done.
I did not attempt your quiz as I do not watch TV made programmes, only old films or the London news. However now you have published the answers I am quite pleased as I recognized some programme names in your list.
No wonder I coudn't get 8) - I was stuck on 1D = Wand. Ha ha.
Dear DG, a few quick words to say many many thanks for providing an excellent and enjoyable quiz on Sunday! I'm sorry we all took so long to solve the questions but hope we haven't disappointed too much! Having not had a television for nearly 20 years, I was trying to just use my brain to find the answers, sadly with not much success but then I'm not very good at solving crosswords either! Note to self - "I will try to do better next time".
So Mir space station is not instantly recognisable then, otherwise that's a pretty obvious clue. I'm afraid I got stuck on satellite plus the significance (or not) of the A being red.
The red A had me going off down the wrong track too. I tried, but failed, to make the answer Red Dwarf.
Wow The Onedin line - aired before I was born - looks pretty interesting! I might give it a look.
