Correcting release date year and year in title

I'm adding crew for John Denver at Wembley Arena (2013) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4638252/ and correcting the release date to 1979 when the concert was recorded and televised by BBC. I think 2013 is the date when BBC next repeated the concert on TV. In the "Explanation" field for Release Date I've said "https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03jgq83 - see "Broadcasts" for details of original airing on BBC 1 in 1979; the "2013" in the IMDB title is for a repeat in 2013 of BBC Four" to give evidence for the correct date.

Is there anything else I should do to make the change propagate to the year that is embedded in the title? I'm always apprehensive about correcting release dates where the year changes, because this change often does *not* affect the year-in-title.

Hi, Martin. There is nothing further for you to do, but if things do not go as planned, then post the 18-digit reference number of the pertinent release date addition.

Martin, 

Can you provide some more information on when the concert first aired on the BBC? Was the concert shown live? Was it recorded for later broadcast?

In my opinion, the IMDb editors may need some additional proof to correct the release date.

I mentioned that web page in the Explanation field for the correction to the release date, and also in my question in this thread.
