Singapore – BBC Knowledge topped viewership charts in September 2013 to emerge number one among 11 factual channels in Singapore, according to Kantar Media Singapore.
Top Gear, Undercover Boss USA, Ewan McGregor’s Cold Chain Mission and natural history series South Pacific all helped propel BBC Knowledge to number one status.
“We are very pleased that BBC Knowledge has attained number one status again. Last June, we topped the charts due largely to London Calling, a two month programming stunt on BBC Knowledge and BBC Entertainment celebrating all things British,” said Mark Whitehead, SVP & GM SE Asia & Channel Lead Asia at BBC Worldwide Channels Asia. “BBC Worldwide has a long-standing commitment to our audience – to produce and deliver high quality, intelligent content that informs, educates and entertains our audiences the world over. This number one ranking goes to prove that audiences in Singapore and the region understand, recognise and appreciate quality programmes and it is clear that our channels meet their exacting standards. We believe that this is the primary cause of our number one rating this September.”
