Home And Away know skips etc
Dates when ITV are known to have skipped showing an episode of Home And Away, or only showed it in one of it's slots
List of days that no episode made the ITV top 30 for that week, and for which The Guardian confirms no episode had been planned for that day.
1989/12/26 Boxing Day
1990/05/28 Telethon (assuming it wasn't shown within Telethon)
1990/06/08 World Cup 90 (there was a live special 'Frank Bough goes Home And Away' broadcast in the lunchtime slot).
1990/12/25 Xmas Day [Not sure if I checked The Guardian, but Christmas TV website has the listings.]
1990/12/26 Boxing Day [Not sure if I checked The Guardian, but Christmas TV website has the listings.]
1991/01/01 New Years Day
1991/12/25 Xmas Day
1991/12/26 Boxing Day
1992/12/25 Xmas Day
1993/11/07 European Football - Episode scheduled for lunchtime only on this day
July 1994-June 1998
Days that I checked that turned out to have no planned episode. I did not have any viewing figures to narrow down when to check and did not check every single weekday over the period, but targetted the days that were most likely to have not had a planned episode.
1995/05/29 Bank Holiday/Football - An episode was planned for lunchtime, and in a second slot at 16:15, but the latter was preceded by a football match which is known to have gone to extra time, so the second showing may not have happened.
1995/12/25 Christmas Day
1995/12/26 Boxing Day
1995/12/27 Home And Away Special: Shane And Angel A Love Story shown at teamtime instead.
1995/12/28 Home And Away Special: Shane And Angel's Wedding shown at teatime instead.
1995/12/29 Home And Away Special: Sophie's Baby shown at teatime instead.
1996/01/01 New Years Day
1996/04/05 Good Friday
1996/04/08 Easter Monday
1996/05/06 Bank Holiday
1996/05/27 Bank Holiday
1996/06/10 Football - lunchtime slot was Home And Away Special
1996/06/13 Football - lunctime slot was Home And Away special
1996/06/19 Football - lunchime slot was Home And Away special
1996/06/26 Episode was planned in both slots, but as the afternoon football match is known to have gone to extra time it puts in doubt the teatime showing of H&A. Both slots that day are shown as being repeats in The Guardian's listings?

1998/06/11&12 Football - The 11th had a lunchtime showing only, whilst the 12th had a teatime only showing marked as a repeat, so I take this to be the same episode shown across two days.
