Delaying EastEnders has confused iPlayer...
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00s9wc6/EastEnders_11_05_2010/

It looks like the programme is there but it won't play. Up until 20:00 it was 'coming soon'.

Interestingly, that link's pointing to the EastEnders homepage - and the episode page currently has no times attatched:

Meanwhile, Radio 4 listeners were treated to 6 and a half hours of news coverage - with a break for The Archers.

Just goes to show how heavily automated the iPlayer is, and it clearly doesn't take much to upset it. The original link did work to an iPlayer screen, until somebody's actually gone in and manually corrected everything, even if they have missed the rescheduling of EastEnders on Wednesday night.

In fact looking down the entire BBC One schedule for last night on the iPlayer, nearly everything is marked as "Coming Soon". Nothing after 7pm until 10:35pm actually plays. BBC Two iPlayer has the same issue. Looks like the system can't cope with sudden EPG changes.

Did they show yesterdays EastEnders on BBC Three yesterday? And also, I thought Waterloo road was something they wouldn't miss out with them making it in HD and all.

Also, the episodes of EastEnders and Holby Ci+y due to be shown tonight won't be available on iPlayer. They're not 'Coming Soon', they're 'Not Available'

EastEnders wasn't shown on BBC Three last night, was replaced with a repeat of Russell Howard's Good News.

The EastEnders and Holby Ci+y episodes will eventually appear on iPlayer.

Waterloo Road will be rescheduled to next week.

Also the BBC News at Ten O'clock tonight is extended by 15 minutes, thus making BBC Regional News being broadcast at 2245 and the National Lottery Draws at 2255. The schedule will then run 15 minutes late throughout the night until handover to the BBC News Channel.

They preliminarly scheduled it for Thursday but had a change of plan and scheduled it tonight instead.

And you're also right about Waterloo Road - this will now return two weeks from today.
