Apologies. The problem is that I can't read my own handwriting! 8-/

I sat in front of the 'AV' machine and wrote down the pid with ye olde pen
and paper. Then used that to type the email, but misread what I'd written.

Alas, I don't know anyone on the 'TV' side as my main interest is sound
radio. But I may ask someone I know. It seems odd that the episodes are
treated differently, so I'm wondering if someone clicked the wrong option

Oh well, my main interest in these programmes are when they are the kinds
of areas I remember from my ancient past. So - fingers crossed - I hope
later editions that I'm interested in *are* HD! Its particularly useful for
seeing the map projections.

Thanks for the info. My problem with --verbose is that I'll also have to
work out what it reports actually means! But I'll experiment with it!

Thanks for the help,
