Advisory note: BBC programme week numbers


BBC Week numbers throughout 2009 will differ from those of other broadcasters. We have made changes to the BBC Picture Publicity and BBC Press Office websites so that we refer to "BBC Week Numbers" and, wherever possible, actual dates.


We will also reflect this in email correspondence and telephone conversations with you.
