Who we are

Drama showcases the very best scripted content from the last 40 years. Mostly showing BBC dramas and some third party acquisitions, the channel is a one-stop-shop for the most well-loved and classic series that have helped define British television viewing habits.


In the year which celebrates the bicentenary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, viewers will be treated to Colin Firth's much lauded turn as Mr Darcy in the acclaimed mini-series. They will also see an early appearance by Catherine Zeta-Jones in Catherine Cookson's The Cinder Path and a swashbuckling Sean Bean in Sharpe. Other shows include Tipping the Velvet, Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Cranford and Lark Rise to Candleford.
