BBC Television Provide UK Web Users with Free Coverage of Call the Midwife on BBC iPlayer.
Call the Midwife, based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, is a period drama series created by Heidi Thomas.
The actors who play the main roles are Jenny Agutter, Jessica Raine, Miranda Hart, Cliff Parisi, Judy Parfitt, Pam Ferris and Vanessa Redgrave.
The initial series of just six episodes was shown in the UK in January 2012. On its first showing Call the Midwife attracted an exceptionally high audience of more than 10 million people.
As far as dramas were concerned, it was to become the most successful new series on BBC One in over a decade. Hardly surprising, then, that further episodes have since been commissioned.
The appeal of Call The Midwife has not been restricted to the UK, though. The first series started airing in the United States last autumn and received critical acclaim.
The Wall Street Journal said: "This immensely absorbing drama is worth any trouble it takes to catch up with its singular pleasures."
And the Washington Post was equally gushing in its praise, saying: "The cast is marvellous, the gritty, post-war set pieces are meticulously recreated."
BBC Worldwide has also sold the series to Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Spain, Greece, Australia and New Zealand. Plus, BBC Worldwide have also sold the worldwide rights to online broadcast network Netflix, including the rights for download-to-own and video-on-demand services.
So, is this the start of another huge success for British TV across the globe? Just like the TV series Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife is set to become a great British export.
