Nowadays, online video consumption is one of the most popular internet activities to most of the people.
More and more viewers are going to online platform in search of interesting programs to watch.
Compare to the old times, I myself also prefer to watch online now.
I find the online videos are something new that sometimes cannot be found anywhere else, and also it's a good way to stay up to date and on top of trends.
Also, to me, online videos provide a relaxation mood and chance to get away from the day!
If you also like to watch online videos, here's a new channel for you to enjoy the updated British documentaries, dramas, comedies, lifestyle, and preschool programs!

In addition, BBC Studios also announced the first BBC Earth original commission in South East Asia, "Got Science?" that hosted by Harith Iskander, Malaysia's Godfather of comedy and winner of Laugh Factory's "Funniest Person in the World 2016".
Got Science? explores and explains the science of everyday life, using reason, logic, rationale, and science.
Popular myths like consuming durians and alcohol will kill you, and MSG is bad for you are some of the topics covered in the new series.
Total 8 episode series covering different themes of food, health, fitness, sports, anatomy, and technology.

Got Science? host, Harith Iskander: "Science was never my favourite subject in school.
So I was initially apprehensive when BBC approached me to hot Got Science?.
I never quite understood the complex scientific theories and formula the teachers rattled on about in school.
I realize now that it wasn;t interesting to me because I wasn't relevant to my daily life.
Got Science? approaches science in a way that is fresh, fun and accessible.
I hope that viewers will enjoy it and have many light bulb moments as I did."

VP, Content, Asia of BBC Studios, Ryan Shiotani: "BBC Earth is home to the BBC's world-renowed natural history, science and adventure content.
We wanted to do something fast paced, fun and informative that would be specially relevant to our audiences in Asia, and Got Science? fits the bill!
The series explores the science around everyday things we see on the internet to things our mothers told us, like don't drink alcohol after eating durian, all told by Harith in his signature comedic style.
I'm very excited to see people's reaction to the show when it airs on September soon!
