Description

The UK broadcaster often puts the sub-title in the summary as "subtitle: summary".

We can optionally scrape this to be the sub-title, whereas currently we use the summary as the sub-title.

There was a fix for this a long time ago that was removed, I can't remember the reason, but I guess it caused issues for others, would be nice to have it back though.

/me mumbles something about broadcasters not following standards..

"Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it".

I think there's a fine line we need to tread since it's easy to start trying to fix-up the data, but then we end up having a hundred-and-one edge cases. I tried fixing up the descriptions field but it just very quickly became messy.

I'm hoping the subtitle gets in, and then I have one last one in this area to add a new modifier to recording filename to only use subtitle if it differs to description and then it will be nicer.
