Ever since the lockdown, the demand for streaming services has surged and so has the internet traffic. Today more and more people are glued to their screens than ever! At such a time it would be a great thing to list down the best shows on the BBC.
The BBC network’s iPlayer is its streaming platform which features tons of high-quality TV shows, movies, and top-notch English programs. However, this service is only available in the U.K, but there’s a simple workaround to watch BBC iPlayer in America as well.
British shows have their own class. They are fabulously made, high budget and feature A- list stars! So, without further ado, let’s list down some of the best shows on BBC:
Little Mix The Search

Despite the end of the iconic drama series five years ago, viewers can now watch all of the old school episodes from the very beginning-dating all the way back to 2006. The curriculum follows the lives of those attending Waterloo Road, and between the students and the teachers, it is undoubtedly jam-packed full of drama.

But their world is turned upside down as ghosts appear and threaten anything from their surrogate’s history.
Noughts and Crosses
The BBC drama is an adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s acclaimed books and is set in a dystopia in which the UK has been colonized by Africa. A passionate romance builds between Sephy (Masali Baduza) and Callum (Jack Rowan) against a backdrop of racism, mistrust, and intense rebellion mounting on the streets, which leads them both into terrible danger.
In this nightmarish future, interracial interactions are prohibited, but that does not stop a wealthy cross from falling in love with the working class against the odds.
London Kills follows the Metropolitan Police Murder Investigation Team as they address grisly crimes around the capital, featuring a new case in each 45-minute episode. The series carries on from Suspects, a London-based police procedural series, and has a range of striking parallels apart from the cast.
The show has a documentary-style feel and an ad-lib script, which gives way to real, complex performances.
