Banished scored its first sale at this year's MIPTV, to Israel's Yes channel, according to TB Vision (pre-sales were already announced by BBCWW). Televisual included Banished in its list of top picks for MIPTV, and Paul Dempsey, president of global markets at BBC Worldwide has been selling its potential. 

Banished has so much to offer international buyers and is a key title for BBC Worldwide. Even though it is set in 18th Century, it’s also a contemporary and very relatable story about friendship, betrayal and the fight for survival. This is fantastic original, big budget British drama, shot in a stunning setting and has real potential for a returning series.

The series 1 finale is on BBC 2, tomorrow night at 9pm. Don't miss it! Let BBC 2 know you would love another series! Use #renewBanished whenever you can on Twitter.
