BBC Passion transmission times again

There is a little more available now on the transmission times for The Passion. Although the site's Episode Guide gives the Good Friday episode as 30 minutes, the Radio Times gives it as 60 minutes, 9.00-10.00pm. Since the Radio Times for next week is already in people's homes, that has to be locked in as the time, which leaves the Easter Day episode as thirty minutes, at 7.30pm--8.30pm in between Antiques Roadshow and Lark Rise to Candleford. This actually makes a lot of sense since now the Good Friday episode will include the crucifixion and Easter Day will be burial and resurrection. They have also announced a two and a half hour omnibus combining the first three episodes on Easter day. The updated transmission dates are therefore:

Episode 1: Sunday 16 March, 8pm--9pm, BBC1
Episode 2: Monday 17 March, 8.30pm--9pm, BBC1
Episode 3: Friday 21 March, 9.00pm--10.00pm, BBC1
Episode 4: Sunday 23 March, 7.30pm--8.00pm, BBC1

Episodes 1-3 omnibus: Sunday 23 March, 2.15pm--4.40pm, BBC1
