Just fixing some reasonably long standing problems parsing the 4oD feed, which unfortunately has meant a few programmes and episodes were missing from our listings. Should all be fixed in a moment.
We're also thinking about consolidating all the 4oD content as a single channel, as splitting it between Channel 4, E4 and More 4 seems to us to confuse more than it helps.

Now that we've got zillions of programmes in the database, we were well overdue a couple of changes that have just gone live:
- Long lists of programmes are now paginated. This should speed things along some more, but we'll be keeping an eye on whether we continue to get so many timed out pages, and if we do we'll be looking for a different hosting solution. We're on a shared server and maybe that's just not good enough - we'll see.
- Tank Top has been too confusing for new users, so now they'll get some guidance when they first sign up. We'd like to improve this process even further, but it's a start.

Phil did some cool things to speed up Tank Top over the last couple of weeks, but we're still getting quite a few server timeouts. Apologies if you hit our new "unravelled" message - we're investigating what we can do to prevent this...
