What is Election about?

Tracy Flick is running unopposed for this year's high school student election. But school civics teacher Jim McAllister has a different plan. Partly to establish a more democratic election, and partly to satisfy some deep personal anger toward Tracy, Jim talks popular varsity football player Paul Metzler to run for president as well. Chaos ensues.

Where to watch Election


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.
