Hi Mazhar,
Word on the Street is a co-production between the British Council and the BBC. The BBC is working with broadcasters in many countries to show it on local TV stations. For example, in Turkey Word on the Street is broadcast on the TRT Okul channel.
You can't buy Word on the Street at the moment, but you could write to your local TV stations to ask them to make an agreement with the BBC to broadcast it.

thank u in advance.
acyually it works for me, and i`ll be happy if u do that for your all videos.

thanks for your guide to click on the "I can't see video"
I'm Iranian and i can't see some episodes.
is there a way to download these episodes?
please guide me...for first time i saw it on the Persian BBC and i love it!

Hello Saeedeh,
I'm glad to hear that this works for you in Iran. We want to make all our videos visible this way so our users in Iran (and China) can see the videos.
I'm afraid it isn't possible to download the videos for copyright reasons.
Best wishes,
