VIDEO: Preview Clip Of Next Week's W1A



The BBC have released a  of preview clip of episode two of the third series of their award winning sitcom W1A.

W1A is the creation of writer and director John Morton and is set in the BBC, although it is said to be a satire on all labyrinthine management structures. The series follows on from Twenty Twelve, which wryly mocked the organisation around the London Olympic Games, and tracks the next career steps of former Olympic Deliverance Committee lead Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and inept PA Siobhan Sharp (Jessica Hynes) as they take on new roles in the BBC. W1A utilises the same spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary approach as Twenty Twelve, complemented by David Tennant’s dry narration.

Episode 2 
Cross-dressing ex-Premier League footballer Ryan Chelford's appearance on a late-night, midweek edition of Match of the Day did not go well. Host Gary Lineker and pundit Alan Shearer were literally lost for words. But the BBC in general and, in his role as head of values Ian Fletcher in particular, are under pressure to find an on-screen role for Ryan as quickly as possible. A summit meeting is arranged to include heads of football, inclusivity and a late curve ball in the shape of head of diversity to try and find a solution to a problem that is getting increasing attention on social media.

To complicate matters, Fiona Craig, the senior civil servant with responsibility for charter renewal negotiations, is visiting the BBC to see what a normal day in the life of the corporation looks like.


Meanwhile, the campaign to launch user-generated content platform BBC Me gathers pace with David Wilkes still keen to take ownership of the idea he originally borrowed from ex-intern Will Humphries.



The new episode will air on BBC Two at 10pm on Monday 25 September or alternatively series 3 can be watched in it's entirety on iPlayer now.
