Wasn't sure how this gets handled or is it okay to have duplicates in this way?
I haven't gone through all of the episodes but I'd guess there are other duplicates this was as well.
side comment: Would be nice to have a search for episodes and not just titles.

I think search for episode titles is coming with the new site update.
I also believe we'd like to avoid duplicates like this, but the distinction between what's BBC docus and music is blurry in my mind right now.

I found another one:
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/pbs-spec ... es/6531887
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/ken-burn ... es/4879460
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/empire-o ... /seasons/1
Same episode in 3 places
I could see deleting the 3rd one, but the second one seems like a legacy but personally I'd also delete it and only keep the first one and confirm the episodes in the Keni Burn's films were either present in the PBS one or had their own entries if they didn't fit some where like PBS.
