Yes I've seen lots of programmes which are repeated on BBC Two in the 
mornings that re signed. Odd thing is that this was not one of those 
repeats, although I haven't checked to see what the production date was, 
could be it's an old series already being repeated, but then the first 
three in the series downloaded normally. Maybe just a coding error.
