1.33 ER in Europe

German television is currently showing the second season
of "ER" on a channel called Pro7. It airs Wednesdays at 8:15 pm.
Pro7 is currently showing "ER" reruns in its original timeslot,
which is unusual due to the competitive state of German

Called "Urgences" in France, the French version of "ER"
is shown at the rate of two episodes a week (!) on France 2
every Sunday at 8:50 pm. This is also not the same dubbed
version as the French Canadian version that airs in Canada.
The third season has just ended on France 2; the fourth will
be shown during 1998.

[A bit of a different take on the above]: it is written
in the section International Television that the French dubbed
version shown in France isn't the same shown in French Canada,
but it is. The dubbing is made in France and there is only one
version made in French, so that's the one we get here in Quebec.
However, the title has been changed (it's called Urgences in
France and Salle d'urgence in Quebec) because there was already
a series called Urgence in Quebec. So the opening credits aren't
exactly the same from France to French Canada, even if the dubbed
version is the same.
