An episode-by-episode guide

Wanted aired live on Channel 4 during late 1996 and summer 1997. Though written as live, the content is taken from repeats on UK Horizons during summer 2003. Some - but not all - of the episodes featured in-vision signing, clearly seen on the screen captures. We make no apology for this.
