IceTV EPG Content / Above Suspicion 26-03-20
« Last post by IanL-S on March 29, 2020, 04:48:35 PM »
According to the Ice TV EPG and the recording name the episode of Above Suspicion transmitted on 26-03-20 on 9GemHD Melbourne was "The Red Dahlia Part 1" (a season 2 episode) whereas it was in fact Part 2 of Above Suspicion, a season 1 episode (only 2 episodes in season 1). I thought it was odd that the second episode had not been shown when the "The Red Dahlia Part 1" was scheduled to be shown.

I assume that the error is due the error provided by Nine Network. I would expect that "The Red Dahlia Part 1" will in fact be shown in the coming week.

IceTV EPG Content / Coronavirus: How to Isolate Yourself

I saw an ad for this show (Tuesday, 7.30 Cnl 10) so tried to schedule a recording for it.  Not found in IceTV.  Found it on YourTV https://www.yourtv.com.au/guide/tue/evening/

Hi raymondjpg,

You are correct, SBS has only aired up to series 2. The full series of 3 and 4 are online at SBS On Demand. There are no airing dates for these two new series as yet for the SBS TV channels.

Regards,
Alison.

Thanks Alison. I understand what you are saying, that SBS has yet to screen what they are calling series 3 and 4. Those are actually both part of a complete series 2, according to IMDB and Wikipedia, with a total of 27 episodes. I make the distinction because metadata repositories such as TVMaze has the 27 episodes of series 2 listed, in my view correctly, under the title of Les petits meurtres d'Agatha Christie. The TV Database, while I still regard it quite highly, appears to carry data as it were from the SBS stable with four series, under the title Agatha Christie's Criminal Games, in my view incorrectly.

Never mind. The series is a knockout in my opinion.

An SBS Watchlist Newsletter has just alerted me to another nine episodes of Agatha Christie's Criminal Games posted at SBS On Demand. These are presented as Series 4 (as is SBS' wont) although both IMDB and Wikipedia have them as episodes in a protracted second series, these nine episodes dating from 2017 to 2019. Also. according to Wikipedia, the nine episodes posted bring SBS up to date with Series 2, and by the looks of it completes the offering of all 27 episodes from Series 2, still available at the SBS on Demand website!

General Discussions / Re: Number in brackets
« Last post by vader1111 on March 27, 2020, 08:41:00 AM »
I haven't been able to find an explanation for this. What is the four digit number in brackets after the programme title in the My Week listing?
Intially I thought it was the year of the  programme but there are too many that do not correspond.
 E.g. Madame Secretary (2014) the current series is 2019, so that can't be it. However MS began in 2014,so is that it?
Another example Great American Railroad Journeys (2029) can't be the year of release!
Current series of Better Homes and Gardens on Friday night (1996)?
It's got me puzzled.
The bolded bit is correct - it's the year in which the series began.  This is to differentiate between series with the same name, specifically re-makes (e.g. Hawaii Five-O and MacGyver).

Further to MD's comments, there are also numerous changes across the whole schedule, including out of prime time updates and on other channels besides 9.

We're also having to contend with the fact that programming on the secondary channels such as 7Mate/7Two and 9Gem needs to be updated for sporting fixtures dependent on whether they are classed as an 'AFL' or 'NRL' state.

Due to the different time zones that Australia has, it's a case of having to check each channel manually. With a 7 day guide and over 130 Free to Air Channels in the Capitals, and a further 280 plus channels in the regionals, this is an arduous task with the current pandemic situation we find ourselves in and networks chopping and changing their coverage.

I appreciate yours, and all our subscribers patience at this time.

Kind regards,

Tiphanee

Error - "Mastermind"!!

The Mastermind error was simply a mistake caused by the current workload where the staff member responsible was snowed under by amendments, amendments on amendments and contradicting amendments.  All symptomatic of the situation the broadcasters find themselves in due to the effects of coronavirus upon their schedules. Hopefully the cancellation and rescheduling of shows, across Australia with no predictable regional logic, will settle down in the next week or so giving the team time to take stock and get on top of things.

Regarding the TVTonight Nine News schedule - yes we are well aware of their various schedule posts but one cannot be sure they will not change again, which is why we cannot escape manual curation and checking to the best of our ability.
