I notice that the company Burrell Durrant Hifle (http://www.imdb.com/company/co0134624), which has a lot of Misc Company credits for titles and graphics, is also listed as a "person" (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3363112/reference) with Art Department credits. Is this correct? Should companies be listed as "people" in the relevant department, or should they be listed as Misc Companies?

Hi Martin -

Thanks for your report.  To clarify, no, companies should not have name pages on the site, and all company credits should be listed on the company page.  I have now moved all the credits from the name page you reported to the existing company page here.  The change should be live on the site shortly.  Thanks again for your report!

OK. One thing you should be aware of. For the three episodes of "A Very British Murder with Lucy Worsley" (2013) which had name credits for Burrell Durrant Hifle,I submitted Misc Company credits (ie doing it properly!) at about 14:00 (UK time) today. These may conflict with the name credits for those episodes that you've just moved. I'll keep an eye on things over the next few days.
