That translates to: one space, "Afl.:", another space, one or more
characters that are not a full stop (this part is the first and only
capture group), and a full stop at the end.

You want to capture a string that does not contain a full stop and is
enclosed by quotation marks? (with a space in front)
I think the correct escape is a single backslash for the quotation marks.
Seeing the original data (e.g. from dvbsnoop) would help to understand
what you need. (just guessing from your SQL queries hints that the
space in front of the first quotation mark might be the difference)

no worries. I have to look up the documentation for regexp every now
and then, too.

FixCategory is a generic bandaid for fixing stuff that we should not
break in the first place. This fixup was added before I made up my mind
wrt "there is no movie/series indicator in plain old EIT".
If its (almost) always the case that "Film - *" is a series and "Film"
is a movie you can just put that rule into FixNL. Only one false
positive is way better then going by some random cutoff duration.

its only called in EITFixup for finnish stations and german RTL.

Looks good (assuming that FixNL does not break any of the channels that
match but were not in your channel list)
