I’m not sure why, but BBC Two’s online schedule shows a mid-afternoon “closedown” all weekday afternoons next week (4-8 February).

They’ve just started reruns of A Place to Call Home Season 5 in the 3pm slot this week, which I expect will continue next week (there are 12 episodes). Yet there’s no mention of anything scheduled at 3pm online:

There does seem to be something wrong with the BBC Two schedule over the next week or so.

On Digiguide, "This is BBC Two" is scheduled in all nations on Saturday at 8pm, 9pm and 10:45pm, and again on Sunday at 01:15am and 02:50am (the 02:50am scheduling is probably the only correct one).

Then on Monday, a Picture of Britain (a 1 hour programme) is scheduled from 2pm to 3:55pm; and on Tuesday,
Britain and the Sea (another 1 hour programme) is scheduled from 2pm to 4pm.

BBC have changed listings provider but have entered my email address incorrectly and we aren't receiving schedules. Communication via email only and up to 48 hours response. As soon as this issue is ironed out we'll have it sorted. Stupidly they never told us until after it was actioned either. Double annoying.

I wondered what was going on with the listings on my Sky+ EPG. Thanks for the info! Thumbs up

That's not quite right, they haven't changed provider. Just a few technical issues.

Incidentally, and it may not be new, I caught a “BBC Gaelige” logo on the Irish language programme that aired directly before Newsnight last night.
