    I've been searching the web to no avail. Is there a Fall Season for BBCA, or do they just start things all year?

    Where can one find out if and when favorite series from last year will be returning and when that might happen?

    The BBCA website doesn't seem to have this sort of information. I've seen the BBCA shows which are included on the Fall Season lists posted to the tivocommunity.com forums. The Futon Critic and Google searches don't seem to turn up much information.

    In particular, I'd like to know about Clatterford; Location, Location, Location; Robin Hood; and Wild at Heart.

    The only thing I may be able to help on his Robin Hood. It has been picked up for a second season. According to wikipedia, the second season will air on BBC in the UK starting in October as it did last year.

    Here in the US, Robin Hood did not come on until March of this year, so expect the same for season 2.

    Since BBCA shows are mostly aired after their UK showings, they tend to add new shows all the time. For example in the last month on Saturday nights (in Robin Hood's time slot) they have had Jekyll and now Torchwood. They just added Hotel Babylon on Wednesday about a month ago. Based on this, I would say they do not have a "fall" schedule like normal US networks.

    I think that, due to how inconsistent the length of BBC series are, that they just run the series one after another, without much regard to the seasons.

    Thanks. I can wait for them to be announced piecemeal, but just didn't want to feel really stupid if there was a single source to find out all the upcoming shows and I just didn't know how to access it.

    I guess that two of my favorite BBC shows got 86'd - the Night Detective and Murder In Suburbia.
