      TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      September 29, 2007
      Volume 1, Number 47
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.

      The French premiere date for Torchwood - Friday 12 October at 8:50PM
      on NRJ 12.

      CBC TV Canada http://www.cbc.ca/television premieres Torchwood this
      Friday October 5 at 9PM all time zones (9:30PM Newfoundland).

      BTW, it has largely escaped public notice, but BBC America
      http://www.bbcamerica.com ran a blink and you miss it ad on Wednesday
      declaring "BBC America HD - coming in 2008". With the changeover to
      digital and the high percentage of digital TVs being widescreen (many
      but not all of them high definition TVs), more and more cable
      networks are announcing HD versions of their stations. Torchwood is
      produced as an HD show, so it should look fine on BBC America HD (no
      idea how this affects HD Net getting the HD versions of Torchwood
      commercial free and with no content edits). Most of the shows on BBC
      America were made in either HD or a standard definition widescreen
      format (ex: Doctor Who).

      Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .

      I am trying to find websites and station information for some of the
      more elusive Torchwood sales. If you spot it airing or getting ready
      to air in your country, and I've missed it, let me know so it gets
      into the next edition and more fans get informed.
