NHK World on Freesat. A while back there were comments posted about the style/content of some of the programming from NHK International. I just wondered if anyone else has been watching the "March to Recovery" series, dealing with aspects of the tsunami and earthquake, the effects on communities, groups, and individuals. Sometimes very powerful to watch, it is still running on Sundays, and back programmes can probably be seen via their website.

David Parker: As a Yorkshireman I don't have any insider knowledge. The Emley Moor page says July 2014.

I imagine that Briantist has taken this from a recognised source.

Looks as if Digital UK Trade View has been updated to include Mux7 with corresponding dates, earlier than originally planned?

Russ Dring: Well spotted! There are two dates in the next few weeks (26th November and 10th December 2013) which are shown for COM7 starting at a number of sites. Note too that the power is shown as being higher than originally suggested. The local TV muxes have also been included in locations expected to receive a signal.
