YouView to the rescue!

Our YouView box stopped series recording the 10:00 BBC101 Homes Under The Hammer last week, as the BBC jinked back to some earlier episodes, though still in the same series 24.

I suspect they were in a different series as understood by YouView though, which is why they didn’t record.

But which episodes had we missed? I defy anyone to find this easily from the BBC website 😢

But it turns out that the one little bit of supplementary information that YouView gives on the backward EPG is e.g. 24/51. So just stepping through this, a day at a time, is exactly what we wanted to track the episodes down with. 

Freeview Play gives the same information, on its mobile app, but you have to drill into each HUTH timeslot to read it; I don’t know if the display on a TV is any different?

But kudos to YouView for a streamlined answer that seems to elude the BBC itself, and also the BT TV app, which has a text blurb if you drill into their timeslot, but does not think to provide the 24/51 information either.

    Well well looking at BBC website I can see the schedules displayed like this and you can go back a lot further than the 7 days on Youview.

    Cheers, @zulu17

    But finding this on the BBC website has entirely defeated me 😢

    What path should I take from the home page to find this?

    @Visionman

    Thanks!

    Findable with a Google search on ‘bbc schedules’, as is the similarly valuable resource ‘bbc programmes’.

    But maybe it’s just an iPad thing, or even a Roy thing, but I reckon I ought to be able to go through the BBC’s ‘front door’ and find these things by drilling down.

    But I can’t find anywhere to get even a fingerhold when I do this:-



    Unless you know the path, if any, a person should take?
