BBC Worldwide will welcome its highest number of Asian delegates to flagship event, BBC Showcase this month. More than 30 delegates from some of Asia’s biggest broadcasters will fly into Brighton for BBC Worldwide’s annual television market. Regular visitors such as NHK and WOWOW from Japan and Thailand’s Total Entertainment will join first time delegates from TFC and Jupiter Entertainment. BBC Showcase (21-24 February) accounts for around 20 percent of BBC Worldwide’s annual programme sales. The event is an international platform for British talent as buyers view over 1,400 hours of TV content and attend premieres of brand new programmes. Factual programming tops the titles at this year’s event and amongst the blue chip offerings is the BBC’s new natural history title Human Planet. Premiering alongside it is the history title Atlantis. Rooted in the latest archaeological evidence, this historic drama follows the story of the eruption of a gigantic volcano in the Aegaen Sea – thought to have been the basis for the legend of Atlantis. The History of Science is another new title at this year’s event. New drama includes Sherlock and Paradox. Sherlock is a much anticipated three part drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Love Actually, The Office). Paradox is a high octane investigative drama series by Clerkenwell Films starring Tamsin Outhwaite. Sci-fi favourite Survivors is returning as well as the critically acclaimed Wallander and quirky drama Being Erica.
