Bad movie transfers - part 2

In my effort to call out broadcasters for v.poor quality movie transfers for transmission my latest pint of bile is directed towards five and the terrible copy of Groundhog Day they put out on Sunday evening. I sat down to watch it last night and was amazed it passed any kind of QC process - 4x3 1" (or maybe VHS!) bump-up.
I watched the MPEG2 transport stream (i.e. I recorded it off Freeview without re-compression) and so it was the data as delivered.
