AOD availability has for the moment been rolled back to 7 days (except for 
Proms programmes) whilst they work on the issues. I can understand why, I 
agree that it's a bit frustrating :)

I think the perfect storm of problems made everyone extra cautious as they 
continue to work on the systems. Can't really blame them, it makes sense to 
revert to a previous good configuration, resolve problems then reintroduce...
