Brits are about to embark on a new BBC drama titled, Ridley Road, which will transport viewers back to the period of the swinging sixties. Up ahead, we discuss if the show is available to watch on BBC iPlayer and if all episodes are available now.
Ridley Road is based on Jo Bloom’s novel of the same name, which first hit shelves back in 2015. Agnes O’Casey will be stepping into the lead role of the series, with script duties by Sarah Solemani.
Is Ridley Road on BBC iPlayer?
Ridley Road is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, October 3, 2021 on BBC One at 9 pm and the series will also be available to stream on the channel’s companion streaming platform, BBC iPlayer.
The four-part drama will air in four, one-hour episodes every week on BBC One, with the finale airing on Sunday, October 24, 2021.
However, all four parts will be available to binge at once on BBC iPlayer.
Are all episodes available now?
All four parts of Ridley Road will be uploaded to the BBC iPlayer catalog as a box set when the series premieres on October 3 at 9 pm.
After this time, all episodes will be available to watch via the app.
What is the BBC show about?
Following the lead of Bloom’s novel, Ridley Road was inspired by the endeavor of the 62 Group – a band of anti-fascists who took a stand against neo-Nazism in post-war Britain.
The 1962 narrative will be told from the point of view of Jewish woman Vivien Epstein (O’Casey), who aims to pursue a romance in East London after the death of her father.
Vivien becomes involved in the anti-fascist movement after getting a job at a hair salon and becomes the one to infiltrate a neo-Nazi group orchestrated by Colin Jordan.
