I just compared The Inbetweeners Movie resolution on All4 and Britbox and both are 1920x1080/25fps.

Surprised to find The Avengers on there (complete with ABC idents for the early "rarities") as "presented by ITV", even though the rights are now with StudioCanal. Wonder what they'll do if they ever get hold of Thames programming?


To answer my own question (d'oh!), a couple of 70s Thames programmes have cropped up - The Tomorrow People is "presented by ITV", Quatermass isn't.

Quatermass was a Euston Films production, not Thames per se, (so the same status as Minder, The Sweeney et al )?

Quatermass would still come under Fremantle as they own the Euston Films archive.

Yes, it was. I wasn’t sure if that had any bearing on anything, or if Britbox simply aren’t that bothered about consistently crediting the original channel.
