First episode of BBC2 “Victorian pharmacy” attracts over 2.5m viewers
Victorian pharmacy, BBC2’s new television series examining pharmacy in the 19th century, attracted an above average audience in its first episode, which was aired last Thursday (15 July 2010).
Despite tough competition the episode attracted 2.6m viewers — an increase of 1m compared with programmes broadcast recently in the same time slot said David Upshal, executive producer of Lion Television, the production company behind the series. “It shows what an appetite there is for getting informative history right,” he told PJ Online, adding: “Hopefully it will put high-street pharmacy on the map permanently.”
The second episode of the series will be shown on BBC2 on Thursday 22 July at 9pm.
