The popularity of British TV shows is, no doubt, rising and another one in the list is Call the Midwife, the series about a group of midwives who worked in London.
It portrays the lives of a group of midwives in the late 1950s to early 1960s. The story follows the new midwife Jenny Lee in the convent, Nonnatus House. Working alongside other midwives and the nuns, this series shows the harsh living conditions in the Poplar district of London’s impoverished East End.
Their work is to help in safe childbirth in the area and to look after the newborns. In the process, Jenny also discovers the warm hearts and the bravery of the mothers.
Access BBC iPlayer
For all those who are wandering the websites to know where to watch Call the Midwife, Season 1, you can watch it on the BBC iPlayer, the internet streaming service from the UK’s BBC. The service is available on PCs, mobiles, tablets and also on smart televisions.
Apart from the most-streamed Sherlock, The BBC (the public service broadcaster with headquarter in London) has some shows which have found their place all over the world. From Downton Abbey to Miranda, British TV has a variety to offer. And you can watch them all on the iPlayer online.
It lets you stream high-quality TV and radio shows, as well as movies but because of TV licensing limitations, it is available only to the viewers in the UK. You can, however, download the episodes or movies you like and it would be available for the next 30 days to view, wherever you are.
