Interestingly enough there's a posting today on the support forum which 
wonders whether hlshd is being phased out as the "BBC isn't making 
programs available in hlshd (720p 25fps), only dvfhd and hvfhd (720p 
50fps) for HD. The list includes:

Latest episodes of The Film Review, Click, BBC News at Six, BBC Weekend 
News and Episodes 7 and 8 of Below the Surface (Episodes 1-6 of Below 
the Surfaces are available in hlshd)."
