Moving On to get iPlayer premiere

Another day another BBC iPlayer premiere – is anybody else noticing a pattern here?

This time it’s the acclaimed daytime drama Moving On, created by EMMY and multi BAFTA award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern. It will be preimiered in its entirety.

And actually the “pattern” is part of the BBC Trust’s approved trial to explore the role of online premiering across a range of genres and channels.

“We couldn’t be more delighted that Jimmy McGovern’s Moving On will be the first drama series to premiere on BBC iPlayer, in its entirety.  As an established drama in the Daytime schedule, the series premiere on BBC iPlayer will be both a gift to loyal viewers and an unprecedented opportunity for a wider audience to enjoy these five stand-alone films across multiple devices, and at a time that suits them. Over the last year, there has been 43% growth in BBC iPlayer usage across mobile and tablet – with drama programmes driving almost a third of total viewing.”

The new series includes five stand-alone films.
