Gabrielle: You aren't paying Sky for a free channel (your Sky box receives its channels from satellite and has nothing to do with Freeview). Sky only make the recording/playback functions available to paying subscribers, it make no difference whether you're trying to record a free channel or a subscription channel.

If you want to watch previous episodes of Quest Red programmes, you can access many for free on the Discovery+ streaming service or app. See the link below or look for the Discovery+ app on your TV or smart device.

I would love to watch a programme I missed on the 25th September at 11pm. Called How It's Made and it is about how to they keep the money in ATM Machines safe. Would I be able to watch this programme?
Thank you.

Quest do not provide a catch-up service but they are on their owner's streaming service Discovery+.

The programme you want was actually called "How do they do it?" and was actually on at 1130pm and is S11/Ep11.{How it's Made is a different series}.

Whilst the Freeview channels can be streamed live on Discovery+, catch-up services are subscription.
The programme you want is available on Discovery+ and also on Amazon Prime if you have it.

I'm sure it will get repeated, it was first screened in 2014, but when and where I've not discovered so far!

Linda Kent :

If you are talking about Freeview, then subtitles appear to be available on every Quest channel BUT they may not be available on all programmes.
Otherwise you'll have to contact the broadcaster (this is not their website but an independent technical help-site) discovery+
