Viewers can enjoy even more comedy and drama box sets from the BBC archive, with 90s classics dinnerladies, Keeping Up Appearances and This Life all arriving on BBC iPlayer.

Every episode of dinnerladies, Keeping Up Appearances and This Life will be streaming on BBC iPlayer in the coming weeks, starting with dinnerladies which is available now.

Created, written, co-produced and starring national treasure Victoria Wood, dinnerladies is set in the canteen of Manchester based factory HWD Components, and follows the lives of its caterers and regular customers.

Another classic 90s British sitcom, Keeping Up Appearances, will arrive the following week. From Tuesday 16 November, viewers can stream all five series, with Patricia Routledge and Clive Swift as the famous social-climber Hyacinth Bucket and her long-suffering husband Richard.

Cult drama This Life is next, with both series and a ten years later special streaming from Tuesday 30 November. Starring Amita Dhiri, Andrew Lincoln, Daniela Nardini, Jack Davenport and Jason Hughes, the programme charted the careers and personal lives of five old college friends who wind up sharing a house together as young lawyers in the 90s.

Dan McGolpin, director, BBC iPlayer and channels, says: “BBC iPlayer has more choice than ever and alongside many of this year’s biggest hits we’re adding these star-studded nineties classics. We’ve got something for everyone, whether you want to binge on a much-loved programme or discover something new.”
