Well, the Cadfael Series will be over by Mid February. 
Unfortunately UNC takes its sweet time about putting up monthly
schedules. This month it was several days into the month.

UNC's Cadfael series runs different dates than Mystery's.

The only thing I can suggest is to call and ask them.
UNC only lists the current month on their website.
They may also take some time to answer your question
but they do try.

Asking WGBH or Mystery is a complete waste of time.
I have asked them specific questions about Cadfael III
schedules several times and had no answer. But you might
try calling them directly. I didn't. They often don't 
update their pages for months at a time.

Thursday nite schedules for Mystery which sponsors Cadfael.

UNC's schedules may be found at:
http://www.unctv.org/       have fun picking through it.

(I have been known to publish tv schedules from time to time on
neat stuff and so have a little experience in asking and looking
up these people.)


Since it takes me about 10 hours to do a months list and I haven't 
had the time to do a complete one this month here's a partial:

Greek Foot Soldiers will be on A&E tonite from 10-11pm and 2-3am.

Kings and Queens of England will be on the History Channel tomorrow
morning from 7-8am part 1, and part 2 will be on Friday the same time.

Footsoldiers Series is rather goofy. It is narrated and stars 
Richard Karn (of Home Improvement). Yeah, the one with flannel
and the beard. :)

I make no guarantees, check your local schedules. 
PBS may be playing Cadfael according to Mystery's schedule outside
of NC. I listed UNC's which IS different.
