BBC Daytime has recommissioned a series of shows for BBC One for 2023, 2024 and 2025.
Scam Interceptors will be back on BBC One and iPlayer for the second part of series two in October. The programme has also been commissioned for series three for 2024. Rav Wilding and Nick Stapleton will, once again, be based at the Scam Interceptors HQ at the BBC’s Glasgow offices, and, with the help of ethical hacker Jim Browning, the team will be monitoring industrial-scale scammers in real-time from across the globe. Using the same remote-access technology criminals use to scam their victims, the team hack the hackers and try to get to victims first, before they hand over any money. For the first time this series, the Hub team will be joined by ‘Ground Interceptors’ – mobile teams dispatched to try to reach victims in person when all else fails.
Make It At Market will also return to BBC One and iPlayer this year November for series two, filmed in Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire. It will see the return of Dom Chinea and his crack team of business and craft experts as they bring real change to the lives of budding entrepreneurs who hope to make a living from their crafting hobby. Challenges will assess if the amateurs have what it takes, before they head off into the real world to make some cash from their craft.
Big Little Crimes has been commissioned for series two and three, made by Brown Bob Cymru, based in Cardiff for 2024 and 2025. The two new series will be 15×30 story-led programmes, told by police officers from forces across the country, about the cases where they get a lucky break – catching big criminals from something that started out as a small misdemeanour. Viewers can expect to see police force dash-cam footage, drama reconstruction and serving and retired officers recounting crimes that they’ll never forget.
Dr Xand’s Con or Cure will be back in 2024. Dr Xand van Tulleken and Ashley John Baptiste will once again be taking on ‘bad medicine’ as they expose medical crimes and test the latest fads to see what really works. From scams and scares to cons and quacks, the duo will use the series mailbox to investigate the stories viewers say are most important to them.
BBC Daytime has also recommissioned series Moment of Proof and Fraud Squad for BBC One and iPlayer in 2024 also made by Brown Bob Cymru.
Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak Commissioning, Rob Unsworth, comments, “Crime and crafting have long been topics much loved by the Daytime audience, but these series had a fresh, modern approach that made them instant hits with viewers. We’re delighted to bring them back for more programmes – and there’s no chance of missing an episode, because all the new series will be available on iPlayer to catch up, or binge.”
