It was extremely obvious that last night’s (July 18) episode of Pointless, which you list as Series 4, Episode 28, was NOT the episode which followed Tuesday’s episode (series 4, Episode 27) in the original (BBC domestic) showing.
Thank you for your message to BBC Studios.
We appreciate your feedback about the running order of Pointless on BBC Brit.
When we licence programmes to show on our international channels, the global rights are not always available for every episode produced.
For Pointless series 4, BBC Studios has the international rights to 56 out of the 60 episodes and as a consequence we have to amend the running order slightly to that of the original UK transmission.
We appreciate that this may be more noticeable on a show like Pointless which features returning contestants, but we hope it will not impact your enjoyment of the series overall.
Thank you again for getting in touch.
