Ian HP Transatlantic Sessions 2 ---The Latest! (33) RE: Transatlantic Sessions 2 ---The Latest! 24 Feb 99


To add to the frustration, this is an email I just received from the BBC:

Subject: FW: Transatlantic Sessions 2 Date: Wed, 24 Feb 1999 13:50:26 -0000 From: Sian Evans-Customer-Services

Thank you for contacting the BBC. I have had a reply back from the Scheduler's Office to pass on to you?

Unfortunately the fact > the first series got a UK Network transmission doesn't in any way > guarantee the second series will get one.

Well, no, I am afraid the answer is bloody well NOT satisfactory. I am about to email them to say so.
