In England, ER can be seen on SKY One (satellite) on Thursdays
at 10pm (Channel 4 is not currently showing repeats, but). According
to both Katy Lindemann and Ed Griffiths, SKY One's Season Five premier
"has been confirmed as 'end of October, beginning of November'."
Though Ed reports "Channel 4 will not confirm schedules until 2 weeks
in advance", both Ed and Katy suggest that the logical pattern should
mean Season Five "will begin on Channel 4 at the beginning of January
1999"; "...as it has always gone out the first Wednesday after New Year
*[Note: "Day For Knight", the 5th Season Premiere, will be shown
7th January, 1999 on SKY .]
Check the SKY and Channel 4 UK schedules on the
ER Episode List <http://www.digiserve.com/er/erlist.html#uk> regularly
for up-to-date timelines.
