Q 1.0 When are the Babylon 5 reruns on Channel 4?  (S4C?)

A.  Channel 4 are rerunning all 5 seasons of Babylon 5 on Sunday nights.
    Unfortunately the time has slipped back from around midnight towards
    1 o'clock, (again).  There are occasional breaks when Ch4 want the
    late slot for Christmas programmes or one of their feature weekends.

    The Ch4 reruns opened with the original feature length pilot, The
    Gathering, on November 8th/9th 1998 at 00:15.  (Sadly not the
    re-edited version.)

    S4C told me, (in email on November 13th 1998):
    "Unfortunately the reruns of Babylon 5 will not be shown on S4C, due
    to the channel's tight scheduling plans to show Welsh programmes."

Q 1.1 What happened to the Sci-Fi Channel's reruns of Babylon 5?

A.  The Sci-Fi Channel's are overlapping their 3rd rerun of seasons 1 to 4
    and their first broadcast of season 5.

    Season 5's debut on SciFi at 9pm on 2nd November is preceded at 8pm by
    the first UK showing of TNT's behind the scenes documentary, "The
    Making of Babylon 5".  (The documentary was first shown in the USA on
    26th December 1997, just a few days prior to Season 5 opening on TNT.)

    Currently:
      November 1999 - (Seasons 1-4) Weekdays at Midday and 3:00am
      November 1999 - (Season 5) Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00pm

    Historically, (indicates how often SciFi change their scheduling):
      January 1999 - The second set of reruns started.  The feature length
      pilot was shown twice, on January 14th and 17th 1999.  Season 1
      proper restarted on 21st January 1999, running on Thursday & Sunday
      evenings at 21:00, (9pm).

      February 1st 1999 - Babylon 5 changed to showing 3 times a week;
      Sundays, Mondays & Thursdays.

      July 1999 - B5 reverted to twice a week, on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

      September 1999 - The season 4 finale (Deconstruction of Falling
      Stars) was broadcast on 9th September 1999.  However Season 5 is
      delayed until November.  Meanwhile SciFi are playing selected
      episodes on Thursday evenings, (mostly, in September).  In October
      episodes air: Tuesday 5th, Tuesday 12th, Tuesday 19th and Monday
      25th.

Q 1.2 When can I watch Crusade on Sky One?

A.  Crusade has now finished its (first) run on Sky One, no word yet on
    reruns.  It was shown on Sunday evenings at 8pm during July and
    August, and on both Saturday & Sunday for the first two weekends in
    September.
