March 2011 BBC iPlayer performance pack
Let's start a bright new week with a spring in the step and the information pack about BBC iPlayer performance in March.
Here are some headlines selected by my colleagues in the communications team:
• March 2011 saw a new record being set, with 38 million requests for Radio programmes, boosted significantly by World Cup Cricket 2011 coverage and Chris Moyles' Longest Show Ever for Comic Relief
• Overall, BBC iPlayer received 160 million total amount of requests for TV and radio programmes across all platforms, up from 148 million in Feb.
• Live streaming on BBC iPlayer was at the highest levels seen to date for both TV and radio - for TV making up 15% of all requests, and for radio, up to 75%.
• Wonders of the Universe was the most requested programme, with Comic Relief in second place. The rest of the top 20 included children's (Tracy Beaker Returns), and new titles from comedy (How TV Ruined Your Life, Mrs Brown's Boys), drama (Silk) and factual (Attenborough and the Giant Egg)
