I mentioned that BBC 4 was going to run a Belgian show called Cordon in a previous post. The show is described as:
Cordon is a new series from Belgium. Everyday life in the centre of Antwerp comes to a sudden standstill when the area is hermetically sealed off from the outside world. The cause is a contagious and deadly virus which spreads like wildfire.
The people trapped inside the cordon are suddenly left to their own devices. It brings out the very best in them, but also the worst…
The BBC web site says this is supposed to happen in Spring 2015, but it’s getting along in Spring and no new announcements about this. I know that it is supposed to come out on BBC 4 and Four has had some serious budget cuts. On the other hand, they have already announced they were going to be broadcast which says to me they have the money (i.e., these are bought and paid for).
The BBC has the usual menu of reruns, but they are not running some things from the archive that would be nice to see again (could you please rerun the Last Duel?). My question is why if this is sitting around hasn’t it made it to broadcast?
