ITV1 is the main culprit, but I have also seen it on Channel 4 and on Five, and 
even on occasions on BBC1, if it is a fairly long film.

In my view Five is the worst, since they stick 5-minute news, sport and/or 
weather in (plus ad break!) without any mention in the scheduling. I've even 
seen film-review shorties, which tends to blow one's brains out when one's 
trying to follow the plot of a film!
