Wednesday 1st October Heroes Part 1 is on BBC2 at 9.00 and at 10.00pm Part 2 is on BBC3 and also Part 2 is on BBC HD at 10.00pm. So have I missed part 1 on HD or are the Beeb up to their usual tricks and brassing me off.

Weird this one. I've just checked the BBC HD website and the first episode called The Second Coming is, as you say, on BBC2 at 9pm (Oct 1st) with the second episode, The Butterfly, on BBC HD and BBC3 at 10pm immediately afterwards.
The first episode isn't then shown in HD until 23.55 on Oct 5th. So it seems we'll all have to watch the first episode on BBC2 in SD before seeing the second episode immediately afterwards in HD, then going back to view episode one in HD several days later. How bonkers is that?

It sums up the Beebs organisation-hopeless
I presume at 10.00pm on Wed 8Th Oct we will have Part 3 on HD and let's hope we get full surround sound
It was also snarled up with Silent Witness - likely to attract the same audience, I'd have thought. ÿPlenty of other shows are repeated ad infinitum, but not Heroes, it seems.
Don't know why they just didn't show Heroes Ep1 at 10pm and then follow it up with Ep2 at 10:45. However, it was a pleasant change to watch Ep2 without that wretched "BBC HD" logo vandalising the picture (at least via Sky). However, I fear it may have been a mistake rather than a sudden attack of aesthetic sensitivity as the odious blob returned for "Mitchell and Webb".
BBC HD's scheduling logic is something of a mystery. On Saturday they showed "Strictly Come Dancing" on HD, but not the results and dance off show on Sunday, preferring to show a re run of "Robin Hood". As they say...Go figure...
All these issues (and more) are discussed on the Beeb blog...
I was really cheesed off as thought I had not set my series link to record properly, going to record ep1 on Sunday night then watch both before ep3 on wednesday.
And who says the Beeb could not organise a drink up at a brewery!
