Exclamation Doctor Who Confidential - late time change

I'll move this to Chit-Chat once it has been screened - but this is a major(ish) programme.

Late yesterday (too late for TiVo) the BBC announced that tonight's 'Doctor Who Confidential' on BBC3 will now run for 35min from 7.40pm to 8.15pm. 'Doctor Who' on BBC1 is still 7pm to 7.45pm.

There may be some fiddling to ensure no overlap - but who knows?

What brain surgeon managed that one? To start the extra program before the other has finished... Amazing! :?

Phew! I'm not at home, so I set DW up to start a minute early and end a little late, thus getting the later showing of DWC. How lucky was that?

When E4 follows a C4 programme with the next episode, they often overlap by 5 minutes. Desperate Housewives used to do that. They often seem to pad out one of the programmes with an overdose of adverts and include that in the rounded-up scheduled time. It is very frustrating.

It seems it is again all down to the BBC being unwilling to use real time - but five minute blocks.

Dr Who started about one minute early (1859 instead of advertised 1900)
Dr Who finishes at 1942 - next programme advertised at 1945 start.
Dr Who Confidential started at 1943 - so advertised time was changed from 1945 to 1940.
