The wikipedia article says it was first on Channel 4 in 1987. "Channel Television" is an ITV region.

Yet the 1986 in British television page says it was the former year...

The Wiki article on Sesame Street in the UK gives the correct date of 30 November 1987.

The Liverpool Echo (7 Nov 1987) stated that Sesame Street would be shown on Channel Four ‘every lunchtime’ from the end of that month.

The Stage (26 Nov 1987) reported that the series would commence the following Monday (30 Nov) and was the 18th season which ’was shown in the US last year’.
