The winter cooking and baking season is nearly upon us, and BritBox's November premiere schedule is packed full of food-related programming – along with a few scripted programmes, too!
Don't have a BritBox subscription? You can sign up HERE on their website, or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or internet service provider.
Often, there's a slight delay for new content to arrive on the Prime version of the channel, too – so if TV is a big part of your life and you like to see every show immediately after it comes on, we definitely recommend going direct (even if it means buying a Roku or similar device to get it on your TV).

November 4th BritBox Premieres
Mock the Week
This popular panel and comedy show returns to give some of Britain's top comics a chance to take a swipe at the most recent news – and in 2022, there's certainly a lot to mock. The series is well known for championing new and upcoming comedians, and past seasons have included John Oliver, Frankie Boyle, Sarah Millican, Michael MacIntyre, Jack Whitehall, Sara Pascoe, and more.
Sadly, the series has been cancelled after 17 years on the air – with host Dara O’Briain commenting, “The storylines were getting crazier and crazier – global pandemics, divorce from Europe, novelty short-term prime ministers. It couldn’t go on.”

The Curse (2022)
This 1980s-based period drama follows a group of hopeless East London criminals as they become embroiled in one of the largest gold heists ever to occur. Based on the true story of the Brink's-Matt robbery of 1983, it's a fun tale of inept criminals failing upwards.
The series is written by the combined multi-BAFTA winning talents of Tom Davis and director James De Frond (Murder in Successville, King Gary), and Allan Mustafa, Steve Stamp and Hugo Chegwin (People Just Do Nothing) who also star alongside Davis as the calamitous cockney clowns. Karen Pirie writer and Father Brown actress Emer Kenny also appears.
