When will the episode "The Beauty of the Beast" of the original "All Creatures Great and Small" series be broadcast? It was scheduled at 2 pm (MPT) and 7 pm (MPT2) today, but at both times the previous episode was broadcast (which had already been broadcast yesterday; I saw both broadcasts yesterday). It's scheduled to be broadcast Sunday, April 4 at 2 pm. Please forgive me for asking, but is that reliable?
