    Sorry Gerald, you mean they just left the film unfinished? That's incredible. Sounds like the TPTV schedulers don't have a clue about the running time of the films they show. You'd think they would just run their following programmes a little late, or even (heaven forbid) cut back on the adverts.
    Yes, the film was left unfinished and sadly, it was not an isolated occurrence.

      So not only are TPtv knocking off a film before it has finished, now reading back through previous posts, it also appears they start a film about a third of the way into it! This is very bizarre and gives me the impression the channel has staff who haven't a clue what they're doing.

      I very rarely ever watch TPtv in all honesty, and fair play to them for at least showing films that no other channel seem to do (even if it has been butchered completely), but if this is the way they treat viewers - on top of the 'blurring' censoring they also seem to adopt, I'm only surprised anybody bothers to watch it at all.

        I have watched and recorded hundreds of films on TPTV and have never come across this.

            Don't get me wrong: I am a great follower of TPTV and having been watching the channel since the day it started. However, it is only fair to point out issues which they clearly have had with scheduling and transmission matters.

                I too have been watching Spooks on London Live having never seen it the first time round . What a brilliant series.

                  I have an amazon Fire stick and would love Talking pictures to have an app on there so I can watch it. I wouldn’t mind paying for it.

                    When Spooks was first shown it was exciting, very disturbing stuff because it seemed to tally with what was going on in the world at the time....a thoroughly good show, well done IMHO.

                      I always liked the way that they were never afraid to kill off their leading characters, all except Harry Pearce (Peter Firth) who seems to survive all of the mayhem

                        Back in the day I did some work on "SPOOKS". All filmed in Birmingham of course, with a lot of Green-Screen, to show London.

                          For what it's worth, localised transmission issues or no, recent films that went out of sync in their latter stages include Golden Salamander and Meet Me Tonight.

                              Then check your system, possibly the connections - its a sat system, so there should be no problem with signal strength.
