Singapore – BBC World News is to broadcast a new series of its travelogue, The Real…, beginning this month, which will once again be sponsored by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. The weekly five-part series uses celebrity residents to take viewers on a tour of some of the hidden attractions and most intriguing, but less known, locales of famous cities. Beginning on September 25, the new season will take in Berlin, Buenos Aires, New York, Istanbul and Shanghai. Each episode features three different perspectives on the city, sidestepping the usual tourist itineraries in favour of unique, quirky sights that only locals can reveal. This is the fourth season of the series, which has been sponsored by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts since its inception. The five programmes will also be supported with dedicated pages on, featuring video clips and information on cities from both the new season and previous series. InterContinental will also sponsor short-form vignettes, which will air across the channel, and feature clips from the new series. In addition, viewers will be invited on air to submit their favourite photographs of their home cities, the best of which will be showcased on and on BBC World News television.
