Comment (by ajlill at ajlc.waterloo.on.ca):

 But the original airdate is stored in the database as a DATE type, and
 manipulated as a QDate both of which start at the beginning of the
 gregorian calendar. So it should have nothing to do with unix TIME.

 If it just couldn't handle stuff before 1970, I'd expect for a program
 that spans 1970, the pre-1970 episodes would be in recorded order and the
 post 1970 episodes sorted correctly. This is what you get when some
 episodes have no original airdate (or the same oad) and some do. What I
 see is that if all episodes are pre 1970, sorting by oad doesn't work, but
 if some are post 1970, they are all sorted properly.

 Looking at the code, the only reason it should fall back to sorting by
 recorddate, is if the original airdates in the programinfo structure are
 equal, and the only reason that should happen is if the origial airdate
 fetched from the database is empty for both the two programs being
 compared. And the entries in the recorded table are not empty and all
