INSPECTOR MONTALBANO ON BBC FOUR and BBC IPLAYER THIS CHRISTMAS
Italian RAI COM and their British agent Videoplugger are delighted to announce that Inspector Montalbano will form part of the BBC Christmas schedule.
All episodes of Inspector Montalbano (Episodes 1 – 34 ) will be available on the BBC iPlayer from Saturday 14th December, with BBC Four broadcasting a selection of episodes over the Holiday period, beginning with the very first episode, ‘The Snack Thief’, on Christmas Day.
Emanuele Galloni, CEO of Videoplugger says,
The choice by the BBC to feature on the iPlayer for the first time the entire collection of the Inspector Montalbano series is for us a great satisfaction and pride. In the year when we had to say “good bye” to Andrea Camilleri, the glorious writer of the Montalbano books, and Andrea Sironi, the historical director of the TV series, this is possibly the best way to celebrate the life and the work of these two great artists and professionals in the UK. Salvo Montalbano’s TV movies, which have enjoyed success in the UK and many parts of the world, can now be enjoyed in their entirety by the large and very loyal BBC audience. We are particularly proud that our sales and business development efforts have led to this achievement.”
