Midnight Sun - guide shows two episodes but ....
« on: January 21, 2017, 06:39:16 PM »
The last two weeks Midnight Sun has been scheduled with two consecutive episodes. However, there is only one program transmitted which occupies the time-slot. Also the program description has been the same for both episodes. Something clearly not rigth with this. Again next week two episodes are scheduled and they (again) have the same description.

Is there in rality 2 episodes, or is just one episode?

Hi IanL-S,

Yes, they are 2 separate episodes as is the other Swedish crime series on SBS, Spring Tide.

Hi IanL-S,

That is correct that they are 2 separate episodes. Unfortunately SBS at times only gives a single description when airing the doubles. We can only use the information given to us by SBS, sorry.

The SBS guide has Midnight Sun as a single episode of 125 mins duration for next week -
http://www.sbs.com.au/guide/day/2017-01-26/location/WA/sublocation/Perth#/program/11458242

There is only one set of opening and closing credits in last week's broadcast.

Which reference is IceTV using that states Midnight Sun is broadcasting as 2 back-to-back episodes?


Cheers
Geoff

I can confirm that each week so far there has only been one episode - one set of credits, no obvious break.

It could be one of those programs that is packaged in 2 versions (they usually come from the UK; both BBC and ITV). One version is in several parts and one version that is cintains all parts as a single episode. Examples that come to mind are Silent Witness, Dalziel & Pascoe, Lewis, Endevour, Miss Marple, ....

Hi Ianl-S,

Thanks for the additional information. I have changed all the episodes to combine shows, so if it is replayed in the future not be an issue again. :)

Unless they rebroadcast it as separate episodes  ;)

It's 8 separate episodes in SBS OnDemand and in IMDb.  ::)

Oh SBS...So I was right putting in as each episode, as I did look at IMDb also! It's all been changed now, so I'll leave it and see what happens if it plays again.

Tonight's episodes, according to the SBS schedule I just looked at, has the episodes combined. It matters little that there are eight separate episodes in SBS On Demand - they were available for viewing and download  before OTA broadcast. In my view Alison IceTV has done the right thing, and if SBS changes it up again then it is on them.
