BBC One Record Low Rating

840k at 9pm

Wondering how the ratings are impacted as the BBC keeps releasing new drama on iPlayer before they got aired on BBC One.

Also more and more new series - like Normal People, Killing Eve Series 3 (only Episode 2 had a BBC One branded trailer), Talking Heads and I May Destroy You - are now only promoted as ‘available on BBC iPlayer’, BBC One is not mentioned on trailers.

Correct myself - just saw an ‘on BBC One’ trailer of Talking Heads before the Ten. Doesn’t the promo get aired until 30 minutes before the TX?

They're throwing content out though rather than scheduling it wisely - at the moment they need to be scheduling content as thinly as possible. Indeed in normal circumstances they'd have been very little new drama this month anyway due to the Euros.

Reach (particularly youth) and share are only going to head one way (from the inflated numbers we’ve seen) as the lockdown lifts. Most internal targets are annualised. Make hay whilst the sun shines, and worry about a particularly thin August when you get there. And keep fingers crossed you’ve got enough to fill peak by the time mid Sept arrives.

Not in the spirit of the question but wasn't technically Killing Eve a BBC America only production for its first series, or at least when it was commissioned?

I dunno but it was planned on BBC Four before.

Also Series 2 and 3.

BTW, Staged, which had been aired on Wednesdays after the news, has got a rerun, after The Secret She Keeps. Is there a trailer for the series?

Dublin Murders is a recent Irish one that comes to mind.

Surely worth them giving Father Brown a primetime airing. They've 90 episodes of that, so rights permitting worth giving it a chance on Sunday nights, especially as it seems unlikely now they'll have Call the Midwife ready for the New Year.

Christmas Day is going to be interesting.

Dublin Murders was commissioned by the BBC.

Father Brown cannot be shown in primetime due to contractual agreements with Equity and Bectu where the cast and crew are paid a lower rate on the condition it's only shown in daytime. It's the same with Shakespeare and Hathaway.

I don't think it was overseas produced though? Although BBC America commissioned it (I don't know what BBC Three's initial involvement was in the commissioning or acquisition process), it was made by a UK Prod Co?

I would say Killing Eve as an acquisition in the same way that Vienna Blood on BBC Two is because neither were commissioned by the BBC.

A UK prod co which the BBC (via studios) has a majority stake in.

Killing Eve was produced by Sid Gentle Films (BBC Studio takes a 51% stake). The Beeb only said it ‘has acquired’ the series.
