Default The Collection (BBC First, 119) on Sun-Mon 23-4 April

Since The Collection started on BBC First (119) on Sunday, 2 April 2017, the same episode has been aired on the Sunday nights at around 21h00, and repeated in the early hours of the Monday mornings, around 00h40.

Suddenly, this week, the next episode (Series 1, Episode 4) was apparently aired on Sunday 23 April at 21h00, but in the Monday morning repeat slot, the following episode was shown (Series 1, Episode 5).

This is in both the BBC SA schedule and the EPG, but there was no warning given at all of a change of schedule or a departure from the channel's usual practice of premiering programmes in the evening, and repeating in the late night and early morning.

Moreover, the BBC SA schedule and the EPG appear to indicate that next week, Sunday 30 April and Monday 1 May The Collection will revert to the normal practice, with Series 1, Episode 5 shown again in both slots.

What on earth is going on?

Hi there Terrence, I've just received this from BBC:

Seems that episode 4 was broadcast as scheduled but unfortunatelyit was listed in the EPG as episode 5 and may have failed to record on viewers’ recordings of this series.

We can confirm that episode 4 will be shown again on BBC First at 21:00 on Tuesday 25 April and at 00:55 on Wednesday 26 April and will be correctly listed on the EPG and should be picked up by viewers’ recordings.

We have checked the remainder of this series and the EPG listings are correct in both their premiere, narrative repeat and repeat spots.

Apologies to our viewers.

Thanks for the response, MC Marietjie. Unfortunately, the assertion by the channel about what was broadcast is simply untrue (insofar as it concerns the Monday early morning repeat slot).

I watched the Monday, 24 April, 00h41, slot live as broadcast (NOT on an Explora or other DStv PVR), and I can say unequivocally that the episode broadcast in that slot was not the fourth episode ("The Launch"), but in fact the one listed in the EPG: Series 1, Episode 5, titled "The Afterglow". This series shows the episode title and writer credits in a slide at the start of every episode, so there can be no mistake.

While I am writing, I note that the BBC SA guide and the DStv website guide, as well as the EPG, suggest a similar problem with another series, The A Word, next weekend: the Sunday (30 April) 20h00 premiere correctly lists Series 1, Episode 6; however, the Monday (1 May) 00h10 repeat lists Series 1, Episode 3.

Hello

Here is the response from the BBC:

The Collection
My sincere apologies for any misunderstanding, regarding The Collection we can clarify that the premiere of episode 4 “The Launch” did air as scheduled at 21:00 but as Terrence correctly mentions episode 5, titled “The Afterglow” was broadcast in error at 00:40 on Monday 24 April. For any viewers who missed episode 4, this will be shown again on BBC First at 21:00 on Tuesday 25 April and at 00:55 on Wednesday 26 April. Episode 5 will be shown on Sunday 30 April at 21:30 and in the scheduled repeat slots.

The A Word
Regarding The A Word, there was a scheduling error for a forthcoming episode of The A Word in that episode 3 was incorrectly scheduled to be broadcast on Monday 1 May at 00:10, the episode that should have been scheduled is episode 6 and our schedule will be corrected.

Thank you for reporting the issue.
