The BBC will continue to offer new productions to Polyband first for release on DVD and Blu-ray in the German-language European markets. BBC Worldwide, the commercial subsidiary of the UK's public broadcaster, has renewed its first look output deal with the Munich-based distribution company.
In the course of the collaboration established in 2000, Polyband released several well-known BBC titles to German audiences including "Planet Earth", "Little Britain", "Doctor Who" and "Frozen Planet".
The current releases include the nature documentaries "Madagaskar" and "Human Planet". Series like "Sinbad" and "Mad Dogs" as well as dramas such as "Great Expectations" and "Upstairs Downstairs" will follow by the end of the year.
