Information for first time readers of this list:

- This list is available as weekly e-mail from a list server
  provided by TELE-satellit. Just send an e-mail to
  majordomo@tags1.dn.net with the line
     subscribe sat-guide <your e-mail address>
  in the mail body (not in the subject line). You can also write
  'help' in the mail body.

- There is a program available with which you can convert the time
  of the list entries (and the start of a new day) according to your
  time zone. The source code is available at
  and the DOS executable at
  If you don't have WWW access just write me to send you the source
  code as e-mail.

- Most entries contain first "in quotes" the original title of a
  movie or, if the original title is not know to me, not in quotes
  the translation of the German title. Then, if of any interest,
  e.g. to identify the movie in a teletext listing, the German title
  follows (put in parantheses).

- Space Night: see on Bayern's teletext page 398 for detailed
  information of the current week's program.

- Because there are still four non-crypted music channels on
  Eutelsat, I don't include broadcastings of video clips, but I
  do include rock concerts, jazz and classical music. If anyone
  is interested in video clips or any other kind of music, please
  tell me by e-mail.

- A note about 'arte': English movies sometimes have German
  subtitles on the Astra transponder and French subtitles on the
  Eutelsat transponder or are only French dubbed on the Eutelsat
  transponder or are only German dubbed on the Astra transponder
  and might be in the original version on Kopernikus 3, 7.02 MHz,
  or on Astra, 7.38 MHz.
