Blatant error on the site I cannot correct

Hi, could a member of staff take a look at this please?

While adding some recent soundtrack credits to IMDb I noticed that a couple of the singers whose credits I was adding are credited with appearing as themselves in the 1999- TV Series "Biography of the Millennium: 100 People - 1000 Years" [link=tt0396288] which was broadcast long after they died.

Taking a look at this title there seem to be a number of other people who are credited as appearing on the show after they died, obviously the problem is that the attribute (archive footage) is missing from the credits. Normally, I would just submit a correction myself but have been unable to do so as the corrections are being rejected due to the credits being listed at the series level. This title has no episodes attached to it and I am unable to add the date that the archive footage of the person appeared on the show.

Could a member of staff correct the credits at the series level?

The following credits all need the attribute (archive footage) adding to them.

Nightingale, Florence
Chaplin, Charles
Caruso, Enrico (I)
Salk, Jonas
Armstrong, Louis (I)
Kaye, Danny

Thanks
Mark

People are often credited on works which are made / broadcast after the people concerned have died. That's the joy of recorded works

Where you believe archive footage is being used for performers in the cast you can add the attribute (archive footage) yourself

This one is listed as a TV series without any episode data so everything is thought to be at "series level". That's a simple mistake, not a "blatent error"

Hello Col,
When I go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0396288 (& quite a few other IMDb pages) on my iPhone it says:
Safari cannot open the page
because too many
redirects occurred

It works fine in the Netscape browser on my laptop (running Windows 7 Pro)
and in Safari on the iPhone

Thanks for correcting the page but when I try to change anything on it (just as an experiment to see if I can) it now still says:This credit should be added to specific episodes.If that is not possible, please add a year range to the Character field. E.g.(1966)Thanks Steve
