Just William was based on the William books by Richmal Crompton (list at bottom of page) and has featured in three television series.

The first series was two seasons in 1976 and 1977 produced by London Weekend Television and some of the original books were re-published with TV covers by Armada Books. The second series was produced by the BBC for two seasons in 1994 and 1995. To my knowledge, only novelisations of the TV stories were published in a mini series subtitled 'As Seen on TV' by MacMillan Books. The third series was also produced by the BBC and ran for just 4 episodes in 2010. Ten books were published in a numbered sequence by Macmillan Books each featuring TV themed covers. The gallery below is broken into the three separate series...
