 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...
