I’m not sure if this is the most appropriate thread to discuss this, but I didn’t want to start a new one unnecessarily.
Season Six of A Place to Call Home began today on BBC One, and will run each weekday until Friday 22nd February. I see that all ten episodes are already available to view on BBC iPlayer. Although labelled correctly, they appear in a random order. Is it common practice for all episodes of an series to be made available online before they have been transmitted? I can see how this would be popular with those who like to “binge watch” but it gives the impression the BBC are not bothered about “live” viewing figures in this mid-afternoon timeslot. It’s also potentially confusing that the episodes are not presented online in chronological order, particularly as this is a serialised drama.
