Well, I saw all of B7 during its original BBC1 run, so it wasn't a surprise to me, but if I'd never seen the final few minutes of Blake. I'd be well piddled off at the trailer on the Series 3 DVDs.

Talk about major spoilers! What were they thinking of?

I think these trailers where done more for tv companies thinking of buying the 4th series rather, than the already established "B7" Fans and, possible new non-Fans.

I don't remember seeing trailers for fourth coming seasons of, "BBC" shows like "B7" when they, originally aired back in the good old days!!!

Unlike, trailers for programmes shown during credits of other shows a few minutes before they come on, anyway!!! Many shows are spoilt by constant trailers during end credits these days!!!

I'm not sure it really is a spoiler. I think if you have heard rumours about what happened in the end of B7, then it would fill in that information. If you knew nothing about S4, then I think the trailer is vague enough. Because we know what happens, we recognise it in the trailer.

Sorry, I can't agree - there in front of your face there is footage of the main cast members getting

Nothing vague about that whatsoever!

I would have been furious at the time if I'd known in advance what was going to happen (this was when it originally aired).

I am so glad I didn't know - otherwise the shock factor would have been lessened, or even eliminated completely. And let's face it - that's what has kept this show alive in the memories of so many people - the shock ending.

Interesting one this. Can something from a show that was originally shown 24 years ago, repeated several times on UK Gold, been released onto video at least twice still be considered a spoiler ?

There will always be new viewers to it that have never seen the show and are trying to steer clear from websites such as this one to avoid finding out what happens. So to show the climax in an advert for it is a bit strange as this may put them off watching it or even buying it.

However I suppose on the other side of the coin, it could make them want to buy it more because there may be a chance that the shootings aren't the ending.

There´s a saying about nails and heads that seems peculiarly relevant here
