Birmingham biker paramedic Steve Cooper battles to save a heroin addict after an overdose, while fellow paramedic Mark Hayes races to the scene of a crash as a van driver loses control outside a busy city centre station.

Meanwhile in North Yorkshire, biker cop Martin 'Smithy' Smith plays detective as he pieces together a mystery accident. A car has collided with two horse riders, sending them and their horses tumbling into a ditch. One horse is so badly hurt it might have to be put down...

In Cornwall, biker paramedic Iain Hooper races to help 12-year-old Joshua, a promising young rugby player who's been badly hurt in the middle of a game. While Josh's mother looks on anxiously, Iain tries to assess if Joshua’s neck is broken.

Back in Essex, a routine road side check leads to an unexpected chain of events for biker cop Steve Clements. After stopping a driver for using his mobile phone whilst driving, 'Clem' uncovers a trail of half-truths and lies which leads to a dawn house raid and a wanted man.

    I thought the whole point of editing was to get the job done before a film or TV series is released to the public. I guess this is what happens when you employ the services of a tinpot production company.

    This is getting tiresome, please just issue a proper explanation as to why you are not showing episode 3. stop trying to cover things up. Switching episode numbers does not fool fans. Is it episode 3 that has been recalled? Now let me take a few moments to educate you in customer sevice. If episode 3 has been recalled an example statement that may be published could be as follows: With regret channel five are unable to broadcast emergency Bikers: Series 4, episode 3 due to *Insert clear reason here (example: a legal issue over a feature in the programe)*. However *insert your resolution here (Examples: We hope show the episode later in the series/year / this episode will not be broadcasted.* Sorry for any inconvenience. Can I make it any easier for you? Issuing an honest statement with apologies will keep people happy. It is the fact that you are trying to keep people and actively in the dark that causes irritation to fans.

    I remember watching the first 2 episodes on Youtube last week. Went to watch the third episode today only to find it's episode 2 re-uploaded as episode 3. I can't help but notice the description of Episode 2 on this site being somewhat different to what I watched last week. You can't fool your viewers that easily. At least be honest and say that you can't show the episode for legal reasons rather than repeat an episode, then change the description of it in an attempt to mask that apparent error. Channel 5, respect your viewers and they'll respect you back. It would have made more sense to just show next weeks episode instead, then show to one that was pulled for editing in its place.

    But this does not explain what has happened to episode 3?

    It's clear that someone at channel 5 is reading and is aware of these complaints as they are moderating all our posts and removing some of them. Yet they can't even have the decency to explain WHY the issues are happening. That is, in the very least, extremely rude. Also, in advertising an 'on demand/watch again' service and then not providing it makes us well within our rights to write a little letter to OFCOM.

    Oh and my first comment was removed within minutes by a moderator. This leads me to the conclution that it is almost certainly to do with the people throwing furniture out the back of their vehicle

    I reckon they were hoping to hold off until it was repeated tonight again. I think you will find they will upload it tomorrow or in the next few days now it has ben repeated, shown two weeks in a row. they were hoping no one would notice that episode 2 was repeated tonight. By avoiding announcements they can try and pretend that nothing has happened.

    Why have you pulled episode 3?? Why are you showing episode 2 again this week? A nd why are you incapeable of making any sort of clear announcement. At least the BBC apologised and kept fans informed when they pulled the silent witness episodes. Please provide an explanation. What is it that episode 3 contains that makes you so reluctant to show it? And as for late editing request- what a pile of rubbish! It was on youtube for a while before you removed it. more like you need to edit something out of episode 3. My money is on a request from the police to not show the episode as i bet that these guys flining furniture out of their van are due to appear in court soon. As this was relitivly high profile- as it required armed police. Alternatively, someone featuring in the episode has recently died- a nd they want to edit it out in respect for the family. Please give an explanation. Please try and keep up with the other channels. BBC, ITV, C4 would have all issued an announcement- dont fall into the sterotypical C5 image as the naff network

    Perhaps all of us disgruntled users should write to the companies who advertise on 5 telling them we won't use their services or products as they're associated with a company which delivers such a poor service?

    Just managed to watch the voice on BBC iPlayer half hour after it finished live, saturday night and im still waiting for a programme on demand 5 that went out 3 days before. Very poor performance from the guys at 5, you seriously need to look at how you do things.

    I honestly don't understand why five can't get programmes on demand 5 for days (sometimes weeks!) But I'm pleased to say you can watch this episode on Channel 5's YouTube

    And TEN days after this was broadcast to the nation, it's not online and there is no reason given for it being two days later than the first delay. I agree with Elliot. Total joke! At this rate, episode three with be on TV before this is online!

    And at 1:02pm of Friday, still nothing. Poor show Demand5. Oh and the complaints page is 'unavalible' *eyeroll* Rubbish as always.

    "Unfortunately due to a late edit request, this programme won't be available on Demand 5 until Thursday" It's now 3am on FRIDAY morning.....I was going to ask for an explanation but I think I know what's going on here: Channel 5 are running out of shows to broadcast on tv so are repeating shows that have already been on. Obviously they want people to view them on tv rather than internet so they can gain viewing figures. Emergency Bikers is due to be repeated at 12.20am on Saturday. By not putting it online they hope more people will watch that episode instead....THEN they'll put it online for anyone who couldn't make that viewing either. They're holding back until it's completed all it's scheduled rating grabbing slots.

    Missy, THANK YOU!! I am about to watch it. Demand5, I'm getting annoyed now. You cannot put this episode on your own website but are able to upload it on another video-hosting site without much of a delay. Can somebody please explain the logic behind this??

  • Arrhy

    almost 2 years ago

    Arrhy

    So, dispite broadcasting to the nation, allowing people to record and upload this episode to multiple websites, the people who broadcast it to the nation cannot have it on their own website for a week? Demand5, please explain. Why do you allow this to happen? Once this is finaly online, it better play first time! Poor upload times, poor play quality and ever now and again, poor sound. No wonder people are getting annoyed with this service!

    It's not like they have already broadcast it on Tv to the entire nation, any of whom could have recorded it and (will undoubtedly) be uploading it right now

    A late edit request usually meaning another term i.e "legal reason" why they have to edit part all all of it out it then has to be approved by the authority who requested the edit request which can take time.

  • Andy - annoyed!

    Andy - annoyed!

    How on earth can Demand Five continue to let these "edit requests" keep programmes offline A WEEK LATER? Why can other channels manage their online content better and have programmes online a couple of hours later?... Please do explain!
