Not *specifically* the works-of-fiction bit (I've observed this during live
viewing, returning from doing something else while the other programme was
supposedly still on only to find that the film had already been resumed), but
I can provide plenty of examples of schedule data - this sort of interruption
is *very* common; barely a film goes by without one on some channels.

However, the default timer margins should cover this.

And on some other channels (ITV1) they put more than one programme in the way
- that's to do with a commitment to showing news at 22:30.

Two examples are attached.

I think I'll procrastinate now. Nah, I'll leave it until tomorrow...
