    I missed this great series last October because I was on Holiday, but luckily it has returned for a repeat showing on UK Drama.
    Sadly it seems not to be transmitting in 16:9, it looks like it is being transmitted as a 4:3 image but on my widescreen projector I am getting black bars, and it doesn't make a differance if I switch my Projector to wide.
    Was this show made in 16:9 and was it transmitted in 16:9 last year on BBC2 year :(
    I guess UKDrama only transmit in 4:3.

    The show rocks, up to Saving Private Ryan standards.

    Yep, BBC showed the anamorphic 16:9 version.

    It is no surprise that it is not 16:9 on UK Drama as none of the UKTV channels use 16:9. The best you get from them usually, is non-anamorphic 14:9. Although they have purchased the 4:3 versions in this case.

    Keep an eye on the Tv guide, UKDrama will probably show it again in the near future, these sat channels do seem to repeat programmes quite frequantly.
