BBC Documentaries
http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=79660&lid=7

Been trying to clean this up and have noticed a lot of duplicates which should probably be deleted.

Seasons 1, 2 and 99 should be removed to keep with the pattern of handling documentary series by years.

Season 2002 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 9161&lid=7)

Season 2003 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 3017&lid=7)

Season 2007 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 6222&lid=7)

Season 2008 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 7871&lid=7)

Season 2009 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 0683&lid=7)

Season 2010 (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seri ... 2441&lid=7)

Been trying to clean this up and have noticed a lot of duplicates which should probably be deleted.

Incidentally, I was just about to post almost the same. :D

So - seconded.

And there's more to clean up in there. E.g. everything marked "(Horizon)" has to go, as it's already in there.

@mcosta1973: would you like me to help?

Well, you helped me with Timewatch so I thought I'd return the favour :)
Shall I go on researching the rest of the episodes?

@admins/mods: am I allowed to haul stuff around between seasons and delete duplicates? Wouldn't think of doing it without your permission.

The Moon that one's tricky. The videos I found online clearly have the BBC logo, but they are all the German version "Der Mond - Herrscher der Nacht". If anyone knows the original title we'd be getting somewhere


I'm guessing it is half of a bbc dvd release called "The Sun/The Moon" seen here:

http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/reviews/1 ... ove-affair

and

http://shop.abc.net.au/browse/product.a ... tid=757400

Can't find any air dates for it or if it even aired on tv.

Here's the first part of 2010.
Looking at the list raises some questions:
- What to do with two/three parters? Make them their own mini series or leave them where they are? Or, to look at it the other way: should we re-integrate two/three parters that already exist as their own series back into this umbrella list?
- Should we split documentaries between BBC channels? The lists are getting pretty long, and when (or if) I start adding my backlog from the earlier years this could get a bit ugly ;)

Someone just added this: http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&ser ... 6591&lid=7

Overview: In this shocking episode of Our World, Chris Rogers goes undercover, posing as
one of the millions of so-called sex tourists who visit Brazil.[...]


If an Overview starts like this at least I would stop and wonder if there might be a series involved... http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0070w71/episodes ... Ok, it's got only 167 episodes so far, so it's easy to miss.
And it's not on thetvdb yet.

On the other hand, there's an ABC series by the same name, but I think "Our World (BBC)" or something like that would do?

Oh well, can opened, worms everywhere... ;)
