We’ve just received the following information from the lovely people at BBC Worldwide, who are celebrating Benedict Cumberbatch’s birthday today with a range of programming on their social sites and on the BBC Global iPlayer App.
As it is Benedict’s birthday today we at the BBC Global iPlayer are celebrating on our social pages too! Our app and Facebook page are available in 16 countries (Western Europe, Canada and Australia).
We want to let Benedict’s fans from outside the UK know they can catch some great performances by him on the app. We have ‘Sherlock’ in Canada, ‘Van Gogh: Painted with Words’ in Europe and ‘Small Island” in Europe and Australia for example. Apart from the shows being available on the app, we’ll be posting a gallery of photos from said shows on our Facebook page, including some behind the scenes pictures from the first series of ‘Sherlock’ for fans in Canada. As we are the international version of BBC iPlayer, we are unavailable in the UK, but we can see that many of your followers come from all over the world!
