    I imagine ITV will be pretty happy with the viewing figures for The Masked Singer. Although it did lose 1.2m viewers from the first episode to the second.

    I started posting the chart towards the end of January last year. I think when we get to that point, for shows like the soaps and other shows which were on at the same time last year, I may post the difference over the year.

    A bumper crop of Christmas specials and new programmes helped BBC iPlayer to its best festive fortnight ever. The holiday period (20 December – 2 January) was BBC iPlayer’s biggest on record, with 203m requests*to stream or download programmes, up well over a third on the same period last year.
    New Year’s Day was BBC iPlayer’s best-ever day with 17.9 million requests, also up by well over a third on the previous year, as viewers sank their teeth into new series Dracula and stepped back into the Tardis with the new series of Doctor Who.

    Over the whole holiday period, the long-awaited return to Barry and Billericay in the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special was the top episode, with 4.6 million requests. The three original series have also been performing well over Christmas, as iPlayer viewers revisited their favourite moments from the show, with 6.8m for the classic series.

    Dramatic events in Albert Square as Keanu was kidnapped and apparently murdered by Martin Fowler helped EastEnders dominate the iPlayer top 20 over the holidays - making up 9 of the top 20 episodes on iPlayer. There were 15.6 million requests for EastEnders over the fortnight, with the Christmas Day episode topping the pile with 2.2 million requests.

    Other strong performers include the Call the Midwife Christmas special with 1.8 million requests, and the new drama A Christmas Carol with 1.6 million requests.

    The top 20 BBC iPlayer programmes (by episode) over the festive fortnight are:

    Christmas week also saw a record 10.7 million BBC account holders sign in to watch programmes on iPlayer, with a record 3.6m of them aged under 35.

    Dan McGolpin, Controller of iPlayer and Programming at the BBC, said: “It was a cracking Christmas for BBC iPlayer with more people than ever enjoying a huge range of great shows. The Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special was the icing on the cake, generating a ground-breaking number of requests, plus fan favourites like EastEnders and Call The Midwife and new series His Dark Materials and A Christmas Carol also top performers

    "2019 was iPlayer’s best ever year and 2020 got off to the perfect start with the New Year’s Day Doctor Who and Dracula both helping to deliver the highest number of requests in a single day. Millions of people are enjoying iPlayer’s expanded box-set offer and new series being made available for longer.”

    This includes BBC iPlayer request data between 20 December 2019 - 2 January 2020, so programmes will have differing availability within this period. Many programmes, such as Dracula, Doctor Who and The Trial or Christine Keeler were only available at the end of this period, and are still available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

    *Some BBC iPlayer data from Sky isn’t available at the moment, but will be added to these figures and published at a later date.

    Eastenders seems to be very popular on iPlayer. I assume out of all the soaps Eastenders has the youngest viewing audience?

    I'd imagine so, out of the big three, at least. And I think iPlayer is more popular than the ITV hub as well, which helps. Can't say I'm surprised about that at all, as I find it way more user friendly.

    The BARB website has them from 1981 up to 2018. I assume they will add 2019 in due course. I'll add a few at a time, I think.

    These charts appear to be the Top 10 of each year, but only including the highest single episode for each soap or serial. The figures look crazy by current standards.

    I think I actually remember the days when the soaps got up to 20 million viewers if not more.

    A film getting over 20 million viewers is totally unheard of now. Especially a James Bond film.

    I remember HOW LONG it took to see a film if you missed it at the cinema. Worse I'm pretty sure the VHS releases would often have limited runs or be ridiculously expensive.

    Where I grew up you couldn’t get to a cinema unless you travelled for over 2 hours. Films were a real treat.

    When did home video become popular? I know we didn't get one until really late - I think about 83 or 84?

    And yes, didn't it take about a year for a film to come out on rental video anyway, and then about a year again before it hit retail?

    I remember when I worked in a video shop when I was in sixth form (so we're talking 1987), there was still a very clear rental/retail market split, and that the store owner used to pay about £60 or so for a rental copy.

    I can’t imagine either Emmerdale or Coronation Street getting anything approaching a young audience :D Eastenders has definitely done the best job of cultivating and keeping its younger cast members.

    Hollyoaks on the other hand (if it still gets an audience AT ALL) I imagine to mainly be young teens now.

    Hollyoaks has the top 4 programmes on E4, with each episode ranging between 0.869m and 1.119m. Isn't it broadcast multiple times, possibly on different channels, though? Those stats are I think only one broadcast.

    No idea. Some sort of documentary? The only further info given is that it was broadcast on ITV on 20/10/1985.

    I’m not sure there’s any question here. I doubt sincerely that it was half an hour of Princess Diana slowly flicking herself off to Charles playing the hits of the day on the banjaleelee.

    Then again, what an idea for a show...

    I’ve had a quick look at what we used to sit round watching between the power cuts, outbreaks of scurvy, a Potato Waffle for tea and coughing up blood, and not only is this a silly load of old toss presided over by the sort of person you’d not leave the children with, but the insistent racket of the band really does redefine OPPRESSIVE :wired:



    Thank God for NOW :disco:

    16.85m for Play Your Cards Right in 1982 :disco:

    I did love that. In fact I used to get very close to openly sobbing with excitement at the merest hint of the theme tune. Emotional stability at a premium from an early age :side-eye:

    That was the Christmas Day episode. Which I believe was the Den serving Angie with divorce papers episode. Not that I've watched the show for two decades, but surely one of the all time iconic moments?
