British Invasion!

Downton Abbey

Let’s admit it. Slowly but surely we’ve been becoming obsessed with British media. Especially British television. From Downton Abbey to Sherlock to Doctor Who, British pop culture is slowly starting to invade the mainstream US media. With BBC America and streaming based services these shows are easier to access and are now becoming more popular than ever. Netflix and Hulu are even starting to broadcast some original programming with shows like The Wrong Mans, The Fall and Derek.

Here at Media and Reserve Services we are not exempt from this. We’ve slowly been expanding our collection of British movies and television.  In this blog series I’d like to highlight some of the items in our collection, maybe introducing content that isn’t as well known. I’ll also be discussing British media in general. Including an upcoming post about the British Television Awards (which are this Sunday).

In the meantime check out some of our media from across the pond.
