    Does anyone watch the quiz show Perfection? It's been on for three years, and Series 1 is being repeated at the moment.

    There is one thing that I find a little odd about it... while Series 1 is being repeated, they appear to be planning to go straight from Episode 9 to Episode 11 without showing Episode 10. I've checked, and last time it was repeated they did the same thing. Episode 10 has not been broadcast since its initial airing in 2011.

    Does anyone know why this is? Have the BBC been banned from re-airing it for some reason?

    It doesn't really matter, I'm just curious.

    How strange. I have just looked myself and too find this intriguing. My solution could be that maybe one of the contestants has since passed away and their family wish it not to be shown.

    That's an idea, I suppose. I don't think that that is a good reason though. I've applied for a few of these things (never got on any) and you have to sign lots of forms agreeing that if you take part, the BBC are allowed to rebroadcast it whenever they want and do pretty much anything with the footage. If that's the case when you're still alive, why should it be any different after you die? I think it sets quite a dangerous precedent, as it gives the families of all deceased people who have taken part in these shows rights over the footage in perpetuity and that is surely not right.

    Plus, from a viewer point of view, it is a bit annoying. The episodes of this quiz are not self-contained; they continue day by day. The jackpot rolls over if not won in each game, and the contestants evolve and change gradually, rather than just having new people each show, so it is possible to follow.

    Is there a way of finding out what the reason is? Anywhere you can email the BBC to ask etc...

    Episode 10 of series one was the Celebrity Special featuring a number of veteran BBC stars.

    I don't think I need to elaborate.

    Oh I see. I didn't realise that it was a celebrity edition, I don't think there was anything about that on the website. It would make sense for them not to show it in that case, because it wouldn't fit with the continuity of the rest of the series.

    When you say 'I don't think I need to elaborate', is that you saying that Jimmy Savile took part? Because if he did, that can't be the reason that they're not broadcasting it, because they didn't broadcast it the last time they repeated it either and that was before the scandal came out.

    When average40 says he doesn't think he needs to elaborate, I think he means it is probably best not to on this board. smiley - smiley

    Hi George

    You can contact the BBC to ask the question via this page. https://faq.externa...

    The BBC rarely, if ever have the rights to show programmes "for ever". In addition, if something changes - for example the programme is to be broadcast on iPlayer - the contract has to be renegotiated to allow for this, and people do have the right to say "no - I don't agree" and the programme can't then be shown.

    You can read/watch some information about broadcast rights via this page.

    Do people ever refuse to grant rights?

    Sadly this does happen from time to time. I've got quite a lot of experience of it over the last 25 years. And it's not always money. It's not always the fact that someone asks for a huge amount of money.

    It's actually more often because of an artistic integrity issue. It might be a writer, for example, who's now very well established, writing top-of-the-range content for BBC television, who doesn't really want his public to see again that perhaps rather naive piece of work that he scripted 50 years ago. And he has the right to say no, and we have to respect that right to say no.

    Okay, well that all makes sense. I've sent an enquiry via the link you said anyway, because it seems a little odd that the BBC is licensed to broadcast the rest of the series, but not Episode 10.
