On your recent 'Monster Moves' programme, you showed a Spitfire being transported to the USA. It was stated that the person receiving the spitfire had a world war 1 tiger moth. The DeHavilland Tiger Moth did not make it's maiden flight until 1931. It's cousin, the Gipsy Moth flew some 6 years earlier. The First World War ended on 11th November 1918. The programme also stated that the Spitfire went into production just before the second world war, and was developed using the Packard Merlin engine. This is not correct. Packard (USA) were not licensed to produce Merlin engines until 1941, and even then I do not believe they were ever used in main-build Spitfires.

Caroline dunne : If you can get a Freeview signal, yes, otherwise you will have to use FreeSAT - see How can I get Channel 5 on Sky in Ireland? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

Briantist: The four Channel 5 regions, 5*, 5*+1, 5 USA and 5 USA +1 are now free to air via Astra 1N. The only one that is still encrypted is Channel 5+1. These channels on Astra 2A have now been switched off.

NottsUK: Thanks for that, I have updated the database to remove the "card required" flag from the listed channels. I wonder when 5HD will appear FTA?
