Hello Peter M!
Somebody mixed up tabs on the main page BCSW. And now actually "Meet to cast" is Series 2, "Series 1" is Series 3, "Series 3" is Meet to cast, and even there is "Series 4", that in fact, Series1. Maybe Harry did it, because was so excited about married to Bindyu (joke) .

Hello krig,

Thanks for letting us know about this. I've checked it and the links appear to be working correctly, so perhaps this was a temporary issue. Please let us know if the problem reappears.

You ve made mistake...series 4 big city ..episode 10 isn't ok...it is lession from elementary..
Please corect

Hello mirjanas,

As far as I know, series 4 of Big City Small World has not been published here on LearnEnglish. Could you please explain the error that you've found in more detail? We'd certainly like to fix it, but since there's no Series 4 Episode 10 page here on LearnEnglish, I'm not sure what you're referring to.

Best wishes,
