Corrections don’t replace the original but add it instead

I’ve correcting data in which I replace "Benny Hill" (1962) with "The Benny Hill Show" (1969) but instead of replacing it, it repeats it with the same description.

That's probably because that show is simply called Benny Hill.

The Benny Hill Show in Black and White was on the BBC in the years:
1955
1957-58
1961
1964-1966
1968

Benny Hill in Black and White was on the BBC in the years:
1962-1963

The Benny Hill Show in Black and White was on ITV in the years:
1957-1960
1967

The Benny Hill Show in Colour was on ITV in the years:
1969-1986
1988-1989

There's probably things which are missing or need correcting from the various The Benny Hill Show productions, like missing episodes or incorrect/missing production/distribution companies, but the title for Benny Hill (1962-1963) isn't one of them. There's also clearly countless colour screenshot photos and DVD covers from the ITV version which need removing from the BBC versions of the show.

Hey Niall - thanks for submitting these items. I've checked these out and you provided no evidence for the deletion of these two longstanding connections, so the editor declined it. Your additions were approved but then shortly after deleted by another contributor in error as a duplicate. I've fixed this all for you in the back end so this is now correct:
