    Hi,

    ITV replied to an email saying:

    Sanctuary is scheduled to start on 6th October with an hour long episode that is repeated on 8th October.

    Each episode will be shown on a Monday and then repeated on Wednesday and they are 1 hour long.


    Also asked them why we haven't seen any publicity about Sanctuary being screened on ITV4 but didn't get a reply to this.

    Is that 9pm time slot definite? If so, yay! I am one of the small minority who've started watching ITV2, 3 and 4 a lot more lately. They keep doing great stuff like putting on cult shows from the sixties etc. And of course there's X Factor Xtra

    It is time that ITV made more of these channels. The BBC has found them to be an excellent little goldmine - some shows like Torchwood even got higher ratings than whatever was on the terrestrial channels.

    (to non-UK folk: before digital TV came along, the UK had five analogue, free to air channels - BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. These are broadcast the traditional way, through via transmitter towers. Next there arrived the subscription, pay to view, channels from Sky, which were broadcast via satellite, and hence the five free channels came to be referred to as terrestrial and the Sky ones were called satellite channels. Next we got cable, which isn't broadcast through the air at all, but the main five channels are still called terrestrial. And lately, we've got digital TV, which will eventually replace analogue and you get it through your aerial, so therefore it is technical terrestrial too. Nearly everyone gets digital, although some pockets of the country still can't recieve signals. On digital, you've got the 'free' channels aka free view, and there are also channels you can pay to subscribe to. I'm guessing ITV4 is a free channel but I don't know for sure as we've got cable.

    Yeah right they does not have the ball too do anything creative or risky on ITV and that why I rarely watch the channel. To tell you the truth I cannot remember the last time I sat through a ITV program apart x factor and Britain got talent.

    Probably true , but they hold a public broadcasting license which means they are limited to the amount of foreign created shows they are allowed to show. Through I do not think they are near that limit yet.

It seems to me that terrestrial broadcasters in the UK are afraid of pure (or space based) sci fi, simply because it's a subculture, so by its very nature you are looking at a limited audience for most sci fi shows. There have been a few exceptions, Star Trek's, Red Dwarf and Buffy where on at prime time, but they were all on BBC2 which was the home of less mainstream programming.

    They prefer to broadcast programmes that are going to appeal to a wide audience. The BBC has a remit that in order to justify the license fee they have to broadcast programmes in a wide variety of categories, which is why they still do Songs of Praise for example. That's probably why we still get sci fi programmes sometimes.

    Pushing Daishies was quirky, and because of the main characters ability it could be classed as sci fi, but overall was more a romantic comedy (?). Programmes such as X Files, Lost and Heroes are in the sci fi category as well but are earth based so attract a far wider audience than pure space based sci fi such as BSG of B% for example

    They probably think that the majority of people who are going to watch Sanctuary will only be the Stargate fans anyway, so you are looking at a limited number of viewers from a less than primetime show anyway. Unfortunately as much as I am looking forward to it and as much as I love Stargate and AT I don't think Sanctuary will ever be primetime or mainstream on UK terrestrial channels.
    That one of the reason their profits are falling so bad. They are unwilling to take risks on anything which have not been done a thousand times before. This kind of programmed would of gone well running along side supernatural which they do show on ITV 1, although never seem to be on regularly or advertise.

    Which will be the same for sanctuary no advertisement means no profile which means small viewer numbers, and the time it airs will change every episode. Unlike the bbc when they get hold of anything like this they advertise the hell out of it, like they are doing with Heroes now, with adverts on after virtually every single show about it. And they do the same for torchwood and they did it with the spooks code 9 not sure about the last one but the above all got pretty descent ratings.

    And scifi does bring in the viewers Babylon 5 was prime example they showed the last episode of the show and it bought in the same numbers of viewers as the soaps did.

    Just adding they I believe that their license does also force them same as channel 4 and the bbc to showed a diversity of programs to. And channel 4 license actually forces them to show non mainstream programs, and controversial programs.

    Its great we are going to see it so soon, but its TERRIBLE thats its on ITV4.

    ITV4 means no HD, thats the first bad thing, secondly not only will it lack HD, but it will be on a channel that is of the poorest broadcast quality. ITV is well known for having low bitrates. All ITV channels suffer the same problems, the complaints at AVforums.com keep mounting up. The F1 is almost unwatchable at times, looking like a sub-youtube mobile phone recorded video. It might be ok on a smallish CRT, but on an LCD or plasma bigger than 32inches its appalling.

    Frankly i will be looking for an alternative source for the show, one that can do it justice.
