This is a fortunate side-effect of the Radio Times' upstream provider
adding a lot of series/episode numbering in their data (and to a
lesser extent, yours truly adding support for them in the grabber to
expose them).

Less of a welcome addition at the same time were the changes to a lot
of descriptions for old programming which had been very consistent
until that point. That change meant that oldrecorded could contain
quite a lot of entries with no programid and changed descriptions -
which depending on the chosen dupe detection method - could mean a lot
of re-recordings.

Thanks for the update!
