This Farming Life – Season 3 (available from 10th January 2020)

The agricultural documentary returns, following the ups and downs of six new farming families in Scotland and Northern Ireland as they face tough economic times and an uncertain future. Whether dealing with the difficulties caused by a sick herd of cattle or battling against a bitter snowstorm, they must withstand all that the elements throw at them. With joy and heartache in equal measure, This Farming Life reveals the secrets of a singular profession.


This Farming Life – Season 3 (available from 17th January 2020)

Starring Oscar winner Olivia Colman and Oscar nominee Tom Hardy, this feature film adaptation of the National Theatre’s sold out verbatim-style musical captures the true events of a 2006 tragedy. Members of the Ipswich community band together for the betterment of their town after the quiet, rural city is shattered by the discovery of the dead bodies of five women.


Vera – Season 10 (available from 21st January 2020)

The longest-running British-born detective series with a female lead is back for the 10th series. Two-time Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn returns as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope, whose offbeat manner and appearance belie a knack for catching killers, but not without the aid of her trusted colleagues. Each episode is a standalone storyline that keeps viewers on the edge of their seat. The crime drama series is based on the beloved Vera Stanhope Mystery novels written by Ann Cleeves (Shetland).


Mrs. Brown’s Boys – all seasons (available from 21st January 2020)

Brendan O’Carroll brings his hysterical matriarch persona, Mrs. Agnes Brown to BritBox as its new exclusive U.S. streaming home.
