CANADA: BBC Canada To Run W1A Marathon On July 12th
BBC Canada will be running the entire first season of the award-winning UK comedy W1A during the afternoon of Sunday 12th July. The spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary created by John Morton follows some of the characters featured in his previous series Twenty Twelve. Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), former head of the Olympic Deliverance Committee, is about to take up a new role as Head of Value with the BBC. There he finds himself embroiled in new controversies and labyrinthine administrative procedures and meets a whole new cast of eccentric characters - and a familiar face in PR guru Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes). David Tennant provides a dry narration to procedures.
The mini-marathon starts at 3.00pm ET on Sunday 12th July on BBC Canada. There is a later repeat starting from midnight.
