Default Blue Planet II - The Prequal

BBC Brit just showed an AD for Blue Planet II - The Prequel on BBC Earth - saying it will air tomorrow (i.e. Wednesday) at 13H00 but the TV Guide shows an episode of Life Below Zero in the time slot - please advise?

Hello

This was reference to a five-minute promo for Blue Planet II that aired at 13:00 today. Unfortunately, promos aren't generally indicated on the EPG unless they run longer than 10 minutes and are provided in the schedule by the channel.
The actual show is only scheduled to air in early 2018 (dates have not been confirmed as yet).

Thanks for advising. I was aware that it was just a promo but since it was specifically advertised by the channel in advance I would have thought it would reflect on the EPG.

Anyhow, it was a stunning 5 or so minutes for those that did manage to watch/see it - the series is going to be brilliant!

Does anyone know how often they repeat things, would like to find out when they may repeat season 1. I had too much to watch during the premiere period so gave it a miss :-/

I don't know what the cycle is but I have definitely seen it being repeated more than once. Maybe they will do so just before the new series airs.

There isn't a repeat scheduled for the next two months, but it's a safe bet that there will be a repeat before the new season airs.
