Default Mix-ups with Birds Of A Feather on 123

Hi,

The remake of Birds Of A Feather S01 is scheduled to start on 123 ITV Choice on Monday 2 Jan. with E01 @ 20:00 and E02 @ 20:30.

Firstly, these two episodes are not marked properly in their synopses - both just say "S1".
They do seem to have the correct metadata though as my Explora SBR set this morning does recognise both as individual episodes.

Then I saw that S01E04 is supposedly being broadcast beforehand @ 23:50 on Sat. 31 Dec.

No sign of an episode 3 yet.
I have not looked at the online guide for any further clues.
I'm starting to think that the British channels have by now ended up quite a bit less competent with their scheduling than our local channels

Oh no - sounds like a big mess! And probably no-one around to fix it either!

Is anyone following up on this with the EPG team and/or ITV?

Hi,

We've followed this up with the channel and there was an error with the schedule provided. ITV Choice apologises for the confusion and any inconvenience caused. The episode scheduled for Sat, 31 December, has been removed and we're currently fixing the schedule to reflect the correct information of the remake.

I see this has been fixed but please note that your series recordings will have to be reset.

Why Krugie? Nothing has been broadcast yet. Unless your Ep. 1 & 2 were not appearing in the Recording Schedule after the adjustment(s)?

I don't know as I decided not to record this on the Explora after all.

That was indeed the case - so something in the background must have changed as well.

Default Not a remake

Just to correct one thing said on this thread: the series of Birds of a Feather currently on ITV Choice (123), first airing at 20h00 and 20h30 on Mondays, is not a remake: it's a revival, continuing the original series, with the original main cast (Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson, and Lesley Joseph), and resuming the original chronology.

In the continuous numbering of the series (both BBC and ITV), and despite the EPG series numbering, the one currently on is series 10 (2014), the original run of nine (BBC) series being from 1989 to 1998.
