Is the broadcast Nov. 2 on BBC1

I have read all the stuff in this category and find two dates, one for Nov 2 on BBC1 and one for Nov9 on regular BBC. I of course cannot get regular, but have the BBC1 with the subscription to Showtime bought for me to watch Brotherhood. Hope I am not misreading this as I really am looking forward to seeing JI as a regular nonpathogenic character. In several interviews he seems to want such a part badly and wishes for a series equal to West Wing, which is probably what State Within can be if it has the creative genius of a guy like began WW.......hope this comes true for him!

MG, do you mean BBC America?? I don't think we can get BBC One in the US. And yes, the 1st episode is on Nov 2nd.

You're no dummy MG. Stop being so critical of yourself. Besides it's an easy mistake to make, especially if you don't watch BBC America on a regular basis. I was under the impression too until I found out otherwise.

MG, I'm going to have to join in with Gillian--your curiosity, interest, and persistence in mastering new stuff is inspirational.

We did originally post a broadcast date of November 9 for the first episode of this miniseries on the BBC, because that's what we'd read; that was corrected to November 2 (though Servalan reports that it's delayed by one day in Scotland, in order to accommodate broadcast of a SOCCER game--tchuh!).
This series is a co-production with BBCAmerica, however, and when I e-mailed them to ask, the reply said that they anticipate broadcasting this in the U.S. in February, but could not be more specific.
