Pointless, scheduling, BBC One

Complaint We received complaints from viewers who were concerned that the editions of Pointless between Tuesday 7 February and Friday 10 February did not follow on from the programme shown on Monday 6 February. The BBC’s Response We recognise that the scheduling of Pointless episodes disappointed a number of viewers and that some were expecting to see the jackpot roll over to the rest of the week. The programme on Monday 6 February was actually the last edition from the fifth series and it was always planned that we would take a short break before carrying on where we left off at the start of series six on Monday 13 February. To bridge the gap between the two series, it was decided to show again some classic editions from previous years. Although it was made clear in our online schedule and in listings magazines that we would be showing a small number of repeats, we recognise some viewers felt we should have done more to highlight this fact and we have taken this feedback into account.
