Do any Freeview HD broadcasts carry 5.1 sound please?

If so would any home cinema type AV amplifier work OK?

What was the system a couple of years ago when I wired up some rear speakers to my old CRT TV and found there was surround sound with The Simpsons, or did I dream it?

Many thanks, Michael.

Michael SIMS: There is a version of "Dolby" that will be used on many US TV shows that drives a 5.1 system from the stereo, called "Dolby Surround".

This system has no "carrier" and you will have to press a button on your amplifier to use it.

This differs from the "real" 5.1 systems "Dolby Digital" you find on Freesat.
