With just a week to go before the début of the eagerly awaited new Thunderbirds are Go series on UK television there's already a little controversy with regards to ITV's scheduling of the series.
According to various sources next Saturday will see a bumper double episode air on ITV HD and a simulcast on CITV at 5.00 pm which will be repeated the next day for anyone you misses it!!
The following weeks it will be shown on ITV HD and CITV every Saturday at 8.00 am in the morning!
A lot of people seem to think that this is not going to give the new series a good platform, with only a few dedicated fans tuning in at that time and no new young casual viewers catching the new show.
Most older fans will obviously record it whatever time it's on so no change there, but it's the new generation of fans in the waiting that are the important viewers in this case and I'd hope that the schedulers know their business.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that those young viewers (along with a little steering from us older viewers) make it the success I'm sure it deserves.
