London – Independent distributor DCD Rights has secured a host of presale deals for its new factual content, with broadcasters in USA, Asia and Canada signing content from its diverse slate of series ahead of their debut at MIPCOM 2015.

Discovery Asia and BBC Global News have picked up Mumbai Railways (4×60’ HD), the new series from BBC Productions that explores the world’s busiest railway at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai, India. Airing recently in the UK as World’s Busiest Railway, the debut episode almost doubled BBC2’s 9pm slot average this year. Additionally, new docu-drama Stalkers Who Kill (10×60’ HD), from FirstLookTV, has been sold to Reelz in the US.

DCD Rights continues its successful ongoing distribution partnership with The Open University (OU), premiering two new series at MIPCOM. Genius of the Ancient World (3×60’ HD), produced through a BBC/OU partnership, has sold to Knowledge Network Canada and BBC Global News.
