I notice that someone has recently added a release date for "Ruth Rendell Mysteries" (1987) {Vanity Dies Hard: Part 1 (#8.1)} in Finland 15 October 1994 - this is six months before the release date in the UK on 24 March 1995 (with subsequent parts in subsequent weeks in 1995).

It seems unusual that a programme made by a UK TV company would be shown in Finland before it was shown in the country of origin. Not impossible, but unusual.

Can you check with the person who submitted the Finnish date and see if they meant 15 October 1995. In any case, they've only added a Finnish date for Part 1 and not for Part 2 and Part 3.
