Hate to be a pain, but it will be off again this week (for drum painting) and then on reduced power for another week or two for some other engineering work.

It's annoying (I live in Merstham), but we (the BBC) can't avoid it I'm afraid.

During outage times, you should use on-demand services instead (BBC iPlayer, etc)
