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 BBC has uploaded 2 powerful clips for next week's penultimate episode of Banished. No Joseph sadly, but Major Ross features in What's On TV's preview of the episode.

Why are the convicts here, Governor?' asks Reverend Johnson. 'As punishment, or for punishment?' Another day, another moral dilemma for poor Governor Phillip. This time, a violent encounter between a convict and an officer has put the camp's leader in a quandary – should the offender pay, or are the grim conditions of the colony partly to blame? Meanwhile, Major Ross continues to veer between callously evil and amazingly tender, and James has to endure the darkest night he's known since arriving.

A thrilling episode that will leave you desperate for next week's finale.
