Border Security - are they new episodes?
« on: November 05, 2012, 05:23:34 PM »
The American "survivalist" in last week's Border Security (Prime ACT 19:30 4 Nov) has definitely appeared in a previous episode. I'm not sure about the rest of the program. I suspect that some of the "new" episodes in this programs and similar Australian "look inside agencies" programs sometimes recycle parts of old programs in "new" episodes.

I'm not sure whether the current Border Security run is repeats, or whether the new content has just been diluted with old content.

The synopsis of the "best of British" episode (Nov 11) on Yahoo says "This special edition features British passengers in some tricky situations" and it sounds like it may also be a cut-and-paste job of old and possibly some new material. The Yahoo guide doesn't flag it as a repeat.

Hmm, this is a bit of a grey area ...

Last night and next week seem to be Border Security compilations. Compilations are technically new episodes. Ditto for things like recap "specials". They may just show old footage from past eps, or they may supplement it with unbroadcast footage. For this reason we won't repeat flag them.

However, we will tweak the description to make it clear that it's basically a compilation.
