BBC iPlayer

Not as if the BBC are making any money from it being there either.

Yeah, we've had this discussion. Just because it may end up on the iPlayer doesn't mean its going to stay there. Same for all streaming services.

At least if I lose or scratch my DVD and it doesn't play any more, its my own fault. Not my fault if somebody jacks up the price to licence Cloppa Castle for on some streaming service somewhere and said service says yeah, not paying that so I can't see it anymore...

Anyway there was that issue with The Fast Show on iPlayer, IIRC was that the Chanel 9 sketches, the "look" and the Chanel 9 packaging? I seem to recall they had the wrong versions up for a while

Was only one episode, they put up an unfinished edit for a few days (it was more than just the chanel 9 sketch that had issues), was quickly fixed though.

Happened with Fifteen Stories High as well, where they had the original edit of the pilot episode, with no opening titles and a laugh track, also quickly replaced.

The DVDs of Only Fools and Horses have an unfinished edit of Sickness and Wealth from series 6. It's the best part of 10 minutes longer with a lot of extended scenes (including Mickey and Jevon appearing, which they don't in the broadcast version, but the actors are still credited), and while there's no noticeable editing issues like there was with the Fast Show episode, there's no music or crowd noise dubbed onto the Nag's Head scenes, so they seem bizarrely quiet.

Think this is new, but the iPlayer app on my TV now has a button on the top right of the login page to change the display language to Welsh.

Once inside, the sidebar menu, the settings, the watch live/watch from start buttons etc. are all in Welsh. But category names on the pages, like 'What's New', 'Continue Watching' remain in English, the genres menu (Comedy, Drama, Sport etc.), the days of the week on the schedules and obviously the programme descriptions and titles etc. all remain in English.

Slightly surprised to find that, at some point last year it seems and very quietly, "When Louis Met Jimmy" has been made available on iPlayer. No extra introduction to give it context which I think would have been a good idea to be honest.

The Max Clifford episode remains unavailable...

I think they put it up around the same time they aired The Reckoning drama

I’m pretty sure anyone choosing to watch this would be well aware of what’s come to light about Savile since the programme was first broadcast. I’m not sure what a special introduction could tell people that they don’t already know.

I suppose so, it's more that this was originally made more as an entertainment programme/for laughs, rather than 100% serious documentary like Louis' later work, so I feel it would be worth having an intro putting it into context and explaining that it comes across very differently now to how it was intended.

I only say this because there was at one point a new intro Louis had done for The Hamiltons episode which I enjoyed so I kind of wish he'd do it for every programme, not feasible I know!
