Cult shows top UK 3D wish-list

December 13, 2010

The BBC’s cult sci-fi TV drama series Doctor Who has emerged as the television show most Britons would like to see in a three-dimensional offering, according to a survey carried out by Japanese TV manufacturer Panasonic. Iconic British animated characters Wallace and Gromit came second in the poll results, followed by another BBC offering – the popular car show Top Gear – in third place.

The predominance of BBC programmes in the respondents’ 3D wish lists, suggest that British viewers want cheaper and more easily accessible 3D material from the UK’s public broadcaster to watch on their 3D TV sets. Although the BBC currently has no plans to launch a dedicated 3D channel, it filmed and screened a 3D Dr Who trailer and a short 3D clip of Strictly Come Dancing in selected 3D cinemas around the country this year, which could lead to future 3D programming.
