Are any of the Freeview channels (or programmes) broadcasting in 5.1 surround sound?

It appears that Underbelly is and is possibly the only show doing so. At the start it has had the "In HD were available" logo and then followed by a "Dolby Digital" logo. During the show an AC3 audio track was also present along with the AAC audio.

I actually have sample that cokemaster recorded for me but had some trouble getting it to play back and haven't had time this week to look into it.
