According to this website, Banished will be shown in Australia, on BBC First in June. Along with Wolf Hall, Banished is not one of the fast tracked shows being broadcast on the new channel.  

New period dramas Banished and Wolf Hall may be drawing big audiences in the UK but Australian audiences will be forced to wait for them on BBC First. Wolf Hall, starring Damian Lewis as Henry VIII and Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn, premiered in the UK in January. Averaging 4.4 million viewers it has become the biggest drama on BBC2 since 2002. But it won’t premiere in Australia until Saturday April 11th, nearly four months after its UK launch.

Meanwhile colonial drama Banished, filmed in Australia with Russell Tovey and David Wenham, has also premiered to good numbers in the UK, scoring 3.4m viewers on BBC Two. Co-commissioned by BBC Two and BBC Worldwide Australia and New Zealand, it will not premiere here until June -three months after the UK.

These delays come despite BBC declaring the channel would offer “first, fast and uninterrupted” content to Australian subscribers.

The Banished finale overnight viewing figures were shared by Digital Spy and were up from previous episodes. Great news considering that the episode had no promotion whatsoever on social media and other outlets. News of the amazing Twitter reaction to the banished finale was even reported on by the Radio Times

Talk about an emotional punch, eh? The final episode of BBC2 drama Banished starring Myanna Buring, Russell Tovey and Julian Rhind-Tutt was powerful and heart-wrenching, leaving fans drowning in their own tears.

Don't forget that Banished is available to catch up on BBC iPlayer, to download from UK iTunes or Amazon, and the DVD is released tomorrow! If you want a series 2, remember to use #renewBanished on Twitter, and watch and or buy Banished!
