Well, either today or tomorrow. I was just seeing what's on TV tonight, and according to Yahoo, Airport is on tonight and tomorrow night.
But according to the Radio Times it's on tomorrow night (and Holby City is on tonight).
Either way, they both have the same description of the programme, I don't think I've seen this one before:
Documentary series which goes behind the scenes at Heathrow. It's an early morning start for journalists Steve and Russell who are on the trail of a 1970s superstar who has been banned from entering America and sent back to the UK. At the Animal Reception Centre, Stuart has to perform a mercy dash which leaves him with a dilemma. And in the terminal, the police are called to deal with passengers who have been waiting to fly for ten days.
I didn't think the new Airport was too bad. The titles are the start are a bit crap, and some of the sound effects are a bit dodgy, but it was ok. I wonder if we'll see any more of the people from the old series in future episodes.. like Shaker

Oh no they got rid of John Nettles and replaced the commentary with Lisa Tarbuck! Unfortunately the only person we see from the old series is that animal officer, its supposed to be Airport, not Animal Hospital! But was an OK episode I guess.

Ho Hum, I missed it! .... I agree that John Nettles made the original programmes. My personal favourite character on the original series was the Terminal 2 Immigration Officer Eric " I don't believe you " Day. I can't imagine how any visitor who came through LHR T2 ever made it into the country!
