Images: "Badly Formatted” -- but it’s the same as others already accepted??

This is for IMDb staff to answer, no one else please! 

Submission: 

https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200220-135728-162502 

All images in series: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000dt6y/episodes/player 


Other already on IMDb that is EXACTLY the same: 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11747268/mediaviewer/rm2168358145 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11168112/episodes 


Image, 1920x1080: 


This is EXACTLY the same as others added in the series. But an IMDb staffer is repeatedly declining repeated submissions as "badly formatted"?! 

It is taken from the OFFICIAL BBC WEBSITE, for heavens sake! 

(Why can there not be an explanation box added, so that this type of thing doesn't keep happening and wasting submitter time over and over again?) 

Can an IMDb staff  member answer this please before it gets bounced yet again. TIA.

Where are the IMDb staff that are supposed to frequent these forums? 

The forum even states this fact
This category is managed by our IMDb Content team. IMDb Content is the team that collects and manages the content that makes IMDb authoritative & accurate. We depend upon our users to supply the majority of our content, and will use this space to both answer questions and collect ideas for how to make IMDb more authoritative, accurate, and easy to add to.
My image issue will be voted on within 24h, so unless a staff member sorts this out on here, it will likely get wrongly declined another time, and I’ll have to submit it yet again.

Declined yet again. No comment whatsoever here from IMDb staff either. 

Resubmitted: 
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200224-121745-535102 

(I had to leave a link to this forum in the "Copyright" box on the submission page! Given I cannot actually do so via an Explanation box!)

Making primary image: 
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200305-173426-999602 

ep1: adding SAME IMAGE AGAIN (later make primary image’): 
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200305-175139-064602 

[ep1 in the series has the wrong primary image too, and needs to be this one: 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11694802/mediaviewer/rm2116453633

Notice how it looks the same as the others (with the 'film effect' on the righthand side):
