What is Battlestar Galactica about?

The second war against the Cylons is over and The Twelve Colonies have been destroyed. Now Commander Adama of the Battlestar Galatica and President Laura Roslin lead a ragtag fleet of refugees in a supposed search for the fabled lost thirteenth colony, Earth. However, the dangers they face are many which compound an already difficult situation. In addition to the Cylons hunting and attacking the fleet in space and their infiltrator units carrying out sabotage-even as their former unwitting pawn, Gaius Baltar, helps in the hunt for them while hiding both his own guilt and the strange presence that haunts his every thought, the fleet also faces internal political conflict in which the rabble-rousing figure, Tom Zarek, is merely the loudest dissenting voice, not to mention recurring shortages of food, water and even oxygen. In the midst of these trials, however, clues begin to appear to suggest that Adama's bluff about finding Earth might hold more truthful than anyone could have guessed.

Where to watch Battlestar Galactica


Streaming on iPlayer

BBC’s answer to the streaming world is the iPlayer, which is very handy considering all BBC content is Free. It’s the ideal way to catch up on your favourite shows On Demand, and has a little something for just about everybody.

Got a question about BBC?

As BBC is a public service they’re duty-bound to cater for all tastes, meaning users can watch everything from Eastenders and Strictly to Match Of The Day and Peppa Pig. There are also tons of wildlife and history documentaries to sink your teeth into
iPlayer is exclusively available in the UK. If you’re travelling abroad you will not be able to access the service as the BBC do not have overseas rights.
iPlayer is definitely broader in terms of content and therefore better for families or those who like a little bit of everything. It could be argued that All 4 have a better selection of modern culture shows and comedy series.
