- Most entries contain first "in quotes" the original title

- Space Night: see on Bayern's teletext page 371 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
  Astra, 7.38 MHz.
