Default Ads cutting into BBC programmes yet again

Each weekday, Monday through Thursday, BBC First (119) airs a repeated episode of EastEnders from about 18h00, and a new episode from just after 18h30. The break between the two episodes is the very first after this channel starts broadcasting programmes.

According to the two members of my household who never miss EastEnders, the start of two of the last three new episodes - those at 18h30 on Thursday, January 5th, and today, January 10th - have been cut off by intruding ads.

This is a repeated error on BBC channels, and remains, as ever, unacceptable.

Hi Terrence,

Below is the response from the BBC:

Thank you for your feedback regarding EastEnders on BBC First. Unfortunately the commercial content aired during these breaks was longer than planned for in the schedule. BBC Worldwide Channels and DStv will work together to prevent this from happening again. We are sorry for any frustration this might have caused and we hope that it did not spoil your enjoyment of these episodes of EastEnders too much.
