O...M... actual...G... this announcement is really blogging exciting.

We're organising an exclusive screening of episode one of the new series of Being Human... and YOU could be there!

The screening will take place at a London cinema on the evening of January 7th, 2010 and we're giving away free tickets to you guys, the fans, to claim on a first-come-first-served basis.

The tickets will be available from 10am on Thursday 10th December just follow this link to BBC tickets.

This will be, without doubt, the hottest Being Human event of the year. Those who manage to get their hands on a pair of tickets (yes you even get to bring a friend) will get to see episode one of the new series before it's released on TV. And there might even be a few 'special guests' to surprise us on the evening.

But hold your horses because we're not letting go of these tickets just yet... you'll have to wait until Thursday 10am to get them.

Get excited BH fans, because it doesn't get much better than this...

    "(yes you even get to bring a friend)" just a suggestion, if some of us get tickets and others don't then we can bring the ones that don't as our plus ones?

    I was SO excited, I forgot to be polite....THANK YOU BHP, from deep in our hearts.xxxxxx

  • Comment number 21.

    eagle, don't cancel bafta until after you've got your ticket for this. Just to make sure you get one. Though if I get one and you don't then you can be my +1 :P

  • Comment number 22.

    YAY! This is very exciting indeed! I shall now have to work out the logistics of a trip to London before Thursday.

  • Comment number 23.

    Oh sorry forgot in all the excitement:

    LOVE YOU FOR THIS BH PROD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 24.

    BH PROD: * puts hand up * just a suggestion..... would it be worth saying where on the bbc tickets website to go on thursday morning... out of curiosity i just went and had a look, but got lost in a variety of symphony extravaganzas... just a suggestion...

  • Comment number 25.

    Wow eagle your surprised reaction is brilliant! :D

    You are going to be a hyperactive nightmare on the 7th aren't you? lol. Can't wait.

    Thanks for organising this for us, you really are great to your fans. :)

  • Comment number 26.

    Thank you BH Prod/Aidan and all involved in this....I would love to go and will attempt to buy a ticket on Thursday morning....from work (that'll be fun!)....

    Questions - what time does it start, what time do we need to be in our seats and what time does it finish? Please....

    Many thanks x

  • Comment number 27.

    yah only got a coffee yeh yeh yeh !!!!!! thank you BHP we been waiting so long

  • Comment number 28.

    Think all this excitement is going to my head. Went to take puppy outside and forgot to actually take her with me xD

  • Comment number 29.

    Sorry....manners....Thank you properly for this....kind of thought it had to be something to do with an event but to give us a chance to get to London (first time I've been back in 7 years) to see the one episode everyone has been raving about (even Uncle Colin), is just the best thing....a real treat!

    Sorry we were impatient but...well...we did think first thing...now we're very happy and will attempt to get a freebie...just need to know about those times so I can book a train ticket!! Mwwaahhh...guys...you're the best xx

  • Comment number 30.

    Yes I would need to know the times so I can arrange stuff with childminders (again). So if you could let us know that info that would be great and lovely of you. Thank you!

  • Comment number 31.

    VF: You can't be there? Ohh....

  • Comment number 32.

    A couple of clarification points...

    - The tickets are FREE and come as a pair. The person you bring as your guest is up to you.

    - We're not sure where on https://www.bbc.co.uk/tickets/ the link to this event will be, as it's out of BH Prod's hands. But hopefully near the top!

    - I know you have questions about timings, etc, but all further details will be made available by the ticket team during the booking process.

    Good luck!

  • Comment number 33.

    BHP thank you so much, it was worth the wait... can you please let us know on the link site what we will be looking for or will it be on that page on thursday morning???? is it an evening showing do you know? How much will the tickets be? i so wanna be there.. thank you so so much and for sending us the vid of aiden... THANKS AIDEN!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!...BHP thank you for listening all day to our pleas, we love you too cant wait!!!!!!! amanda xxxxxxxx

  • Comment number 34.

    WOO HOO!!!!! :-)
    Setting every alarm in the house and crossing everything possiable for tickets.......sounds FANTASTIC!!!

  • Comment number 35.

    sorry, i'm back again.... i just wanted to come back and say what a really lovely gesture for your fans (i can't include myself cos i haven't watched it properly yet, i'm here via the desperate romantics route...). i think it's a really lovely gesture and that you treat your fans very respectfully - all the blog videos and updates and they way you satisfy the various lust cravings for aidan turner is v.v. thoughtful!

    that's lovely that is!

  • Comment number 36.

    PS - The ticket team are a mysterious bunch... We've heard they wear masks and capes and jump around the shadows of Television Centre like ninjas, but that may just be a rumour. Either way, the event details are down to them and will be on their site on Thursday, so eyes peeled.

  • Comment number 37.

    VF (17): Ahh, you and be both, sweetie! But it is an absolutely wonderful gesture to us fans!

    HUGE thanks again Blog Team! You're the BEST! MWAH!

    Hehe, and now I can finally get off and do some blogging writing. lmao
    ^^ KC

  • Comment number 38.

    anglo::::no can't go...the girl I work with is away that week and I've got to be in the office all week...But I can easily get swept along with everyone's excitment. It'll be fab....just remember spoilers when you get back. Hehe.
    Just one point though...if I am not going does that mean AT is still coming to my house?

  • Comment number 39.

    BHP: Can i bring Aiden as my guest :-) XX

  • Comment number 40.

    Right I think I've calmed down had a grump about the fact I cant really go and now think I'm back to normal levels lol.

    I'll get some tickets thursday morning if I can navigate the thingy and if you cant get one I'll send you mine...assuming of course I can em I imagine by now thise is re posted on a million and one fansites so they might sell out before we get chance to find it. And if I brave up a bit and end up going someone can have my plus 1 anyway - I have a few friends who are fans but bloggers come first lol

  • Comment number 41.

    wondering if this is a valid excuse to miss my lecture thurs morning???

  • Comment number 42.

    Good point Amanda. Can I insist Seth is my +1?

  • Comment number 43.

    Why can't you go eagle??
    You have to. Even if I have to drag you there.

  • Comment number 44.

    BH PROD (32) Right, that's good, thanks guys for getting back to us so quickly...will await further orders lol

    ALL: There is a "Be in the Audience" wording with "free tickets for shows" directly underneath that, at the top centre so provided they stick to that girls, that's where we'll go...

    I'm hoping we get another blog post telling us the next bit of info is going to be....otherwise we'll not do anything else but refresh until Thursday morning! lol

  • Comment number 45.

    I cant wait..... i just hope us bloggers get there first. i know there are many fans but we love them so much that we blog on their site so much..... yeh still excited...... super u bring Seth i'll bring AT and we could go out for a meal after lol

  • Comment number 46.

    Well if Russell will come as my +1 I might have to go lol.

    Super I might have to I got so excited until sensible brain kicked in :-( will def get tickets anyway because even if I can't theres always going to people on here who are busy Thursday morning.

  • Comment number 47.

    anglo u have to go......

  • Comment number 48.

    Eagle I will drag you kicking and screaming to this thing if I have to. Super knows best, just agree with me. YOU are going.

  • Comment number 49.

    sorry meant eagle so excited getting names wrong lol x

  • Comment number 50.

    Ignore post 40 really should think before I say things - I'm sure I'll end up going...I look like a reet plonker now :-S Super you got my back right? Lol

  • Comment number 51.

    eagle you dont look like a plonker bless you love....xx

  • Comment number 52.

    Eagle, I'll look after you. But you can't not go! We'll come kidnap you if we have to. :P

  • Comment number 53.

    Always. I'm your personal 5'1 body guard. ;) It'll be fun.

    So gutted for those who can't be there.:( ((hugs)) xx

  • Comment number 54.

    Amanda (47) Oh I'm going come hell or high water....I can get a day off then as our leave re-starts on 1st January...and, having looked at my diary, I have an appointment locally at 10.30 so I can grab my ticket (I hope) at 10a.m.....

    A thought...I am hoping that we on here really do have first choice...it could be that the freebie tickets won't appear on other websits until the following day or later that day or something....that would give us far greater chances of getting them...hope this is the case...otherwise, the site will crash cos too many folks trying to get the tickets...trying not to be pessimistic here but hoping that we are such a close community with not that many peeps on here, we might get a good chance of them...

  • Comment number 55.

    Amanda: Sorry, just seen your post....but i want to go anyway!

  • Comment number 56.

    Right I'm gonna watch this video at last then gotta get train (yeah yeah I waited - as if I wouldnt lol) and get some of my jobs done and I'll read through what I'm sure will be about 500 posts when I get back lol. It really is so exciting - I do love the blog team they are so so good to us all aren't they?

    I think they might get more attention than the ahem "suprise guests" ahem ahem lol on the day...get ready Mr P :-)

  • Comment number 57.

    We'll get our 'I heart Barry' tees ready.

  • Comment number 58.

    BH Prod, will the hamsters be there? You've gotta bring the hamsters!!

  • Comment number 59.

    Good for you Eagle we dont get. will be so much fun. I know some of you have met up before but would be nice on the day if we could arrange to meet up, or even catch the train together.. i wonder what cinema it will be in???

    Cant wait....hope all of us on here get tickets.....

    Yeh Team Barry t shirts :-)

  • Comment number 60.

    the twiiter site already mentions the free tickets.....

  • Comment number 61.

    Super you have to get me one lol or one that'll convince Russell to give me a birthday kiss since this is actually on my birthday - and if I can't go which I'm assuming I can't for the time being then someone has to video him singing happy birthday to me lol you thought I was excited before? You aint seen nothin yet!

    Aidans bloody mad isn't he...for the love of god stop giving him sweets! I reckon Tom's been smuggling him haribo...Super no you can't volunteer to strip search him lol

    Right really must go get train see you later guys have fun :-)

  • Comment number 62.

    Lol I got so sick of teenage girls coming in with "team jacob" or "team edward" t shirts on I was gonna go buy one and cross it out and put "team mitchell" or "team george" Lol but they said I wasnt allowed to wear it for work so figured wahts the point - yep really going now lol

  • Comment number 63.

    Team mitchell would be cool... get your train girl.. have good day x

  • Comment number 64.

    Alright everyone get their team tees ready. Yeah we are that sad, just do it!

  • Comment number 65.

    Hi guys, I'm new to the blog. But i can tell you that a am just as excited as the rest of you. Will try to get some tickets but I reckon that they will go like hot cakes (understandably) :)

  • Comment number 66.

    I now have a headache lol to my pc and excitement

  • Comment number 67.

    This is great news but I have three concerns..
    1. will we all get tickets
    2. What time the screening starts as some of us will have to get back to NW England that night and late trains /Virgin trains don't go together
    3. My tinternet getting me onto website in time.

    A day earlier and I could have stayed overnight in london with friends.
    There isn't anyone I work with/play with interested in BH ( I know!) ..if I manage to get a pair of tickets and one of the regular bloggers doesn't you can have my other ticket...this is assuming that the timing of the screening allows me to get there and back from home.

    Ohhhh...Problem no. 4 just identified..how am i going to get out of my lecture on Thursday morning to get on the website!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 68.

    on Dorina u will need to say u have a dentist appt or something, we all deserve tickets and derserve to be there...i doubt the lecture will sink in if your thinking about missing getting the chance for tickets.. i am in same boat and none of my friends watch BH so will offer my ticket to someone too just dont want to be coming home late on a train back to bristol on my own so will be nice to share the journey/ experience with another good fellow blogger ....

    i really need to come off now too many hours on this site that my contacts are falling out of my eyes.. buy for now guys x

  • Comment number 69.

    Thanks Amanda but not quite so simple unfortunately..it's me giving the lecture..! still, there are always ways round these things ..and it is my last lecture of the semester..and..and..I'm sure I'll find a creative solution.

    Biggest issue is getting hold of a pair of tickets. Anglo; no chance that tickets restricted to bloggers only...the news is posted on twitter #beinghuman ( can someone explain to me the difference between that and @bbcbeinghuman?) and there seem to be a lot more people tweet on there rather then the @bbcbeinghuman page...then there are all the forums that will have heard the news by now. Beacause of location at least it may restrict people wanting to go to those in England/Wales ( scotland a bit far?) sorry all other people!

    BHProduction Team...sorry..so concerned with the problems this will cause for me that I haven't properly said a HUGE THANK YOU! ..and you're going to be there as well!...puts the icing on the cake.

  • Comment number 70.

    Dorina, @bbcbeinghuman will send a message to being human. #beinghuman is just a hashtag that can be seen by other people using that hashtag. @bbcbeinghuman is the user whereas #beinghuman is just a topic of conversation.

    I'm not sure that was clear. I may have confused you more. :P

  • Comment number 71.

    What should've taken 20mins took over an hour...queue in Post Office out of the door and round the corner....the moral of this story is get there first lol

    Just started to 'come down' after the slight high earlier...feel quite drained...work tomorrow depending on the sorethroat/earache thing I've had for about three and a half weeks now...of course, this may mean I'm sick Thursday and Friday....particularly Thursday morning...hehe

    Train fares from Bristol should be reduced after Christmas, you Bristol fans out there...I'm assuming they still do Apex fares....a tip : don't ring up and book because you may not get the cheapest...been ripped off like that before...Im going to try and get to Temple Meads and book...at least you can do it face-to-face with someone and make them give you the best fare, wicked woman that I am lol

    Any of the Bristol bods going willing to meet up at Paddington, or even on the train provided we get the same one, and get a taxi together to wherever this thing is to lessen the cost? Just a thought...

  • Comment number 72.

    isn't it annoying how practicalities get in the way of everything?!

  • Comment number 73.

    Ohh noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
    I can't come *cries hysterically*

    Saw this at work about 1ish, asked boss for day off then & there, and he said no because a) "January is our biggest time" and because one member of staff is on maternity leave then, and another has that week off, leaving 3 of us instead of 5!
    Arghhhh life IS unfair!

  • Comment number 74.

    Hi wolfman and dramalovely whose message I can't yet see. Welcome to the blog. :)

  • Comment number 75.

    thank you this will sound very stalker-ish but have been following you guys and been loving the blog!!

  • Comment number 76.

    Missed a bit...Drama and Wolfman hello...unsure how new you are but welcome... you both coming on 7th January?

  • Comment number 77.

    Great to see the BHP thinking of the fans like this. Thanks guys. Not sure I can come - depends on timing - but I'll be there Thurs am to try and get tickets anyway.

  • Comment number 78.

    ATfan1 (73)...I didn't think you could come judging by your tweet...that's a pain for you...at least I'll stand a chance of a day off if it merits it... might be a late afternoon thing like Nottingham which would be brilliant...

    It's difficult for BBC and BH because they couldn't have had this event over Christmas/New Year (fewer peeps able to attend), and with Ep1 showing probably second weekend in January or thereabouts, they were limited as to when they could show it...I guess it had to be arranged fairly quickly, too, which might explain the mix-up with the BAFTA dates/events...

    Now that the news has sunk in, I find myself more grateful to BH & BBC for sorting this out for us...thank you very much all of you...it's a great post- Christmas treat at a time when we're all finding the festive season a bit of an anti-climax...hope as many of the cast can be there as possible but we'll understand if they have other commitments..thanks again...xxx

  • Comment number 79.

    Hi everyone again
    Assuming that I can get a ticket I'm wondering what time the screening is and whether the 'guests' there will have time for chats etc. My last train back is 21.40 which is not very late and I'm thinking that the 'guests' who may turn up will have to finish their BBC thing first..unless of course the BBC thing ( Sinead talked about) and the free screening are one and the same? What I'm trying to say is that if the free screening isn't until say 7.30pm then It'll be a stuggle to watch the eps, listen to Qs/chat with 'guests' and get the train back. I really need the screening to be early evening..but suspect it's later..the BBC tend to have late evening things.

    Cieria...thanks for explanation of the twitter thing..I think I've grasped it now!

    I'll email Bafta woman back tomorrow as she suggested I did for an update but I can't be going down to London twice in one week!

  • Comment number 80.

    Sorry...not turning into a total fan nut...but just had a thought which you may all have had already so forgive me if I'm stating the bloggingly obvious...I'm not trying to be pompous lol

    For those of us who are lucky enough to get tickets and go on 7th January... it'd be great if some could provide pics and anecdotes, particularly if we're lucky enough to meet and greet the cast again, but keep totally schtum about the episode...some peeps probably won't read the blog in case we inadvertently provide spoilers...shall we agree to not discuss the actual epi here at all but to go on yt or other areas to discuss if we need to? We'll probably all be seeing Ep1 again when it's first shown on TV anyway and will be discussing it madly after then :D

    Just a thought...

  • Comment number 81.

    I'm gutted anglo :(
    But I guess there will be more BH events.....

  • Comment number 82.

    I might stay in London. Its a complete waste to book tickets just for that and not go out afterwards. Anyone wanna hotel with me let me know. Non crazies only please. :p

  • Comment number 83.

    AT1Fan....sorry about you not being able to get day off ( think Brilliant and vampfan are in same boat...possibly others as well) but didn't you say you live in london?..if it's evening can you get there?

  • Comment number 84.

    No I live in Devon! Lol, if its late evening may be able to travel up but I doubt that....need to know event times really! :S

  • Comment number 85.

    Dorina has asked bbcbeinghuman on Twi what time the event kicks off.... however, judging by their earlier blog post, I don't think they can tell us yet because the info seems to be being 'leaked' in bite-sized chunks! Keep your eyes peeled on the blog because we might get another blog post or two from them over the next 56 hrs giving us further info about the event, like telling us when to look on the BBC Be in the Audience webpage for times, etc....I've put that webpage on my favourites and it will update automatically or I hope it will :D

  • Comment number 86.

    i've just read through the blogs and realised it's january not december the screening which 1. gives me time to watch series 1. 2. means i could possibly - only v. slightly possibly go... hmmmm.... *ponders* but i am sure to be in a meeting at 10 on thursday and unlikely to get tickets.... hmmmmm again...

  • Comment number 87.

    Allyska- you haven't even watched BH? LOL! Might help if you do..

  • Comment number 88.

    I am so excited for the season 2 to begin!

  • Comment number 89.

    Allyska (86) Have you got the DVDs or loaned them off someone?

  • Comment number 90.

    Now this really is genuine excitement: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh!

    Thanks BH! My only problem now is that I won't be able to get to a computer at 10am on Thursday (I'm normally fine, but this Thursday is an exception!). Hopefully I'll be able to instruct someone to do it for me!

    Thanks again Being Human team....I'm really excited!

  • Comment number 91.

    awwwww that sucks theres no way id be able to go to that !!!!!!! sucha shame i love aidan sooooooooooooooo much

  • Comment number 92.

    Wow....loads of new bloggers tonight....

  • Comment number 93.

    ATfan1: lol...wonder why? hehe...hope the site doesn't crash on Thursday...!

  • Comment number 94.

    Hehe, true......
    But WE are the chosen ones ;)

  • Comment number 95.

    Anglo, It'll really suck if the site crashes on thursday. Touch wood it doesn't!

  • Comment number 96.

    *touches wood for all of you lot*

  • Comment number 97.

    I'm pretty sure that the true fans will get the tickets. Mainly because we stick together like glue. Ssshh don't tell anyone but I'm even thinking of uninviting my bro so I can use my +1 for one of you lot just incase. God, I know he's read that.. :s

  • Comment number 98.

    Haha. Your bro's into BH?
    Other half is interested in Lenora....but not BH as a show to speak of lol!

  • Comment number 99.

    Yes he's a very serious unknown (at this moment) script writer who shakes his head at most of my fickle obsessions but he really, really approves of BH and follows everything including the blog I think. :s

  • Comment number 100.

    Cool....sounds interesting :)
    Be careful what you say on here in that case lol!
