I don't think so. In my experience, ITV and Channel 4 breaks are nearly always 
exactly four minutes long when they occur within programs, unless the program 
length is such that one gets reduced to pad. Yes, the breaks can be longer 
between programs, but myth shouldn't be recording two programs in one file anyway.
