MUMBAI: Britain's latest television content will be up for grabs at this year's BBC Showcase as buyers from around the world flock to BBC Worldwide's annual international television market in Brighton.

Running from 21-24 February, BBC Showcase is the UK's biggest television export event.

More than 500 digibooths will be available for network buyers to view 1400 hours of programming over the four days, alongside exclusive screenings, premieres and events with some of British televisions biggest names.

British TV personalities at this year's BBC Showcase are expected to include Louis Theroux, Matt Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rupert Graves and Martin Freeman, as well as cast from drama hits such as Misfits, Survivors and Torchwood. Writers such as Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and executives from BBC Vision and independent producers will work alongside BBC Worldwide's global sales teams to launch the latest programming to the global market.

BBC Worldwide MD sales and distribution Steve Macallister said, "Registrations are strong from around the world, with Asian participation the highest for years and digital attendance on the up as buyers from iTunes and Nokia attend for the first time."

Launching for the first time at BBC Showcase are drama titles.

The Married Single Other is a tale of three very different couples all trying to work out what makes an ideal 'twosome' and series two of Wallander are contemporary dramas from Left Bank Pictures, fresh to BBC Showcase this year. Clerkenwell's teen show Misfits will also be seeing its first Brighton outing, as will Hartswood Films' Sherlock, the contemporary tale of world-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes and his aide Dr John Watson.

The BBC's new crime drama series Luther will be making its international debut, as will its fifth season of Doctor Who and the second series of action drama Survivors, which focusses on the state of the world in the aftermath of a devastating virus which has wiped out most of the world's population.

Returning drama series are also to be showcased Spooks series eight and nine, Silent Witness, Waking the Dead, New Tricks, as well as comedy from My Family.

The BBC's comedy series We Are Mongrels is also fresh to the market with all the characters played by puppets, this promises to be a hilarious, fast-paced, adult comedy where Nelson the metrosexual fox and his feral friends negotiate life and love in the back alleys of the urban jungle. Gavin and Stacey, The Thick of It and The Jonathan Ross Show are just some of the other comic highlights that will be available to buyers.

Human Planet, a co-production from the BBC, Discovery and France Tlvisions, is a portrait of humankind. The BBC's Natural History Unit have turned their cameras on ourselves. Making its Showcase debut in Brighton, this series is an epic tale of the human story.

Buyers wishing to focus on factual can look forward to Atlantis, a dramatisation of the real-life events that inspired the historical legend. Co-produced by the BBC, Discovery Channel, France Tlvisions and Pro-Sieben, this is a major landmark production, telling the story of Europe's great first civilisation, the Minoans, who were destroyed by a gigantic volcanic eruption in 1613 BC, which in turn led to the birth of the legend that is Atlantis. An African Journey with Jonathan Dimbleby is another factual title premiering at BBC Showcase - challenging a host of prevailing misconceptions and with the insight of one of the UK's most respected journalists, the series paints the continent in an entirely new and refreshing light.

New science show Seven Wonders of the Solar System will immerse viewers deep into the universe to see the many wonders that lie way beyond our own planet.

Topping the music titles will be the BBC Electric Proms with new performances added in 2009 from the legendary Smokey Robinson and the UK's own Rolling Stones.

For children's entertainment there is Teletubbies, In the Night Garden and Charlie and Lola as well as Third and Bird and Tronji.

New formats for the international market this year include Drop Zone as well as Kidnapped by the Kids, a programme for the modern-day family, where children steal their parents away from the chaos of their jobs and demand more family time.
