Moved to Specials. Not really sure what's going on here, but this should at least preserve the data without causing further issues.

Are you willing that share that contact information? I'm of the opinion we should restructure Frontline like NOVA was done, but I think we should get confirmation from them.

Anyone else can follow up to the archivist to confirm ([email protected]), but below is verbatim what I received:

That episode was scheduled to be FRONTLINE #2908 but was pulled from the schedule. I don't have information at hand as to why it was pulled, but it is listed as "never aired" in our system. We don't have any copies of the program in the archives.

PBS has started referring to Frontline episodes by season number instead of year. This might be a retroactive change so I don't know if the mods want to stick with the original format. I'd prefer to keep it as is just so I don't have to manually rename 700 files.

The are tools to take care of the renaming if it comes to that.

This is still a problem in Plex. Plex is using season numbers and the TVdb is using years.

What is the recommended way to proceed?
