New BBC Collection Arrives on Netflix UK

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

A wide range of new BBC content has hit Netflix in the UK just a week after many big titles from its library departed. Here’s the lowdown on what did leave Netflix UK from the BBC and the new BBC titles to hit Netflix on April 7th, 2020.

Note: this list only covers Netflix in the United Kingdom. 

The new drop of content comes as a bit of a surprise given Netflix UK recently lost a large amount of content from the BBC. Some titles, such as The Office and Extras were saved but we weren’t expecting new titles to arrive on Netflix.

Fan favorites such as Dinner Ladies and The Vicar of Dibley have arrived. The entire Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes collections have been re-added to Netflix. There’s also plenty of kids’ content too, including Charlie & Lola and The Clangers reboot.
