Who does the synopsis on the epg?

And why do they use Americanisms and spelling?

I know most people in the UK pretend to be American, but we aren't.

Perhaps they are just using an American spell checker!

I think you will find that the synopsis is provided by the programme makers, it’s probably not cost justifiable for VM to check every one supplied.

None that I know.  Thanks for confirming your previous assertion was nonsense.

programs scheduled”, whoops, seems everyone is now using US English. “Programs” are used by computers, “Programmes” are what you watch on TV. As understood by an Australian citizen!

If you are going to be insulting, then I will not engage with you any further.

one might suggest that you saying that "most people in the UK pretend to be American" is a little insulting.
