The TV Times printed the two-page listing spread at the beginning of each term, as already stated. This stopped around the time Channel Four took over responsibility for schools programmes in 1993. The Radio Times never included a similar feature as far as I can recall.
Both the BBC and ITV (and later Channel Four) produced Annual Programme Booklets, sent to schools and educational establishment. but also available free of charge to the general public. These listed the yearly schedule and also had a feature and synopsis/module guide for each individual programme. BBC produced a separate booklet for Primary. Secondary and Radio Programmes, but the ITV version incorporated all programmes.
ITV also produced a termly wallchart listing the schedule and each episode individually (later this was changed to bi-annually and not termly). They also produced a Primary and Middle School 'Topics' wallchart, and separate leaflets for each Secondary School department summarising programmes of particular interest to them.
The TV Times articles, Annual Programme Booklets. and termly wallcharts were all locally branded and dispatched from the relevant ITV company's Education Office. Around the early 90s this was changed to just four different editions, one for each nation, due to the reduction in regional variations, and I believe they started to be dispatched by a centralised office known as the 'Educational Television Company' in Warwckshire. The 'Topics' wallchart and Secondary School leaflets weren't regionalised, and regional programmes/variations were indicated within them.
As far as I know, the BBC booklets weren't regionalised at all (I assume any variations in the Nations were included).
