Re: Sapphire and Steel - ITV strike 1979

HTV had gone off the air quite early in the action. I suspect the definitive answer as to whether part 4 aired in ATVLand on 9th Aug is lost in time ?? TV listings show it - but it could have been pulled last minute. While some might say that it's a barmy thing to have done without additional info b...

Just to add to this - it looks like ATV were the host of this series and they didn't go off air until 10 Aug. Thames TV had gone off-air several days before. So it could be ATV still played the programme out to a few regions still on air. When the series restarted that re-run all the episodes in the...

Re: A Family at War - The War Office Regrets - strike action

I saw CS was delayed - but was not schedule for the initial day. I wondered if a backup option was available on the first day.
But I suspected that 'in effect' the network playout cables were cut from the Granada end for any Granada production.

VirginMedia switched their feed for TPTV so no longer take it from satellite and the picture is far superior to the Sky channel.

Re: BBC: Dracula (2020)

Haven't watch this yet but I see it is on Netflix US in 4K/HDR with 5.1 audio.

UK viewers had the choice of either 4K/HDR or 5.1 - but not both.

I'm surprised iPlayer is still unable to do 5.1.
