Why am I seeing trailers on BBC iPlayer?

We show trailers on BBC iPlayer to tell you about programmes you might like. Here’s how it works:

When you hit play on a programme on BBC iPlayer, a short trailer may start. If you like, you can skip the trailer at any time by hitting the “Skip trailer” button.

Trailers only play at the beginning of programmes, not when you pause and resume partway through. There are no trailers on programmes with Audio Description or Sign Language.

You can find out more about iPlayer trailers in this blog post.
