BBC to launch first Red Button Holby City episode

The BBC is due to launch a special one-off episode of its medical drama Holby City that will be available exclusively through its Red Button service.

The episode will go live after next Tuesday’s episode airs and will focus on two of the show’s most popular characters.

Last year the firm aired special Red Button episodes around the shows Casualty and Doctors as a way to add value for loyal fans of the shows.

Last month the BBC’s governing body, the BBC Trust, recommended that the BBC merge its online and Red Button operations under a single service license to help them complement each other in the future.
