The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Worldwide is delighted to introduce a range of fresh new content on the channel in Africa, after the successful launch of BBC Brit on DStv channel 120 earlier this week.

According to Joel Churcher, the General Manager and Vice President for Africa-BBC Worldwide said “the content hosted on BBC Brit is designed to reach a diverse pan-African audience, reflecting a wide range of voices, ages and cultures. Our African viewers clearly have a deep affection for BBC programming, and as a leading content distributor, we will continue to deliver high quality, premium content to our channels for many years to come.”

DStv African viewers have the chance of viewing BBC Brit which is all about entertainment that’s intelligent but irreverent, blending expertise with entertainment and facts with fun.

Male-skewing but with broader appeal, the channel is the undisputed home of Top Gear with all new episodes airing first on BBC Brit. The channel covers a rich variety of subjects: cars, science, adventure, business, life-changing moments, extreme characters, quirky eccentrics and comedy.

The BBC Brit which is available to DStv Premium, Extra and Compact customers is packed with brand new programmes and A-list talent, that will showcase the very best in quick witted entertainment.

Some of the new and exclusive titles on BBC Brit include Youngers, Bad Robots, Royal Marines Commando School, Duck Quacks Don’t Echo among others

For instance, the Roral Marines Commando series takes a look behind the scenes of one of the most arduous basic military training programmes in the world.

The recruits struggle to cope with the gruelling demands of their new way of life, toiling tirelessly to master the details, stay awake and even suppress giggles in the face of their drill instructors’ wrath. Some question their decision to join up, while others have their career as a Marine cut short when it’s barely begun.
