BBC is Working on a Drama Based on Grand Theft Auto Development

By   /   Mar 12, 2015

BBC has announced a new Drama that’ll focus on the development of Grand Theft Auto. It’s an attempt to get the United Kingdom more attracted towards coding and technology. I hoped and prayed for a GTA TV series since Breaking Bad, but it seems this drama will be more like a documentary. Well, at least it’ll be educational.

More details about the show are yet to be revealed but this is a drama that’ll be worth watching. GTA drama is a part of “Make it Digital” campaign from BBC. The campaign will also giveaway mini-computers to children across the country to boost UK’s interest in tech and digitalization.

At the launch of this initiative, BBC director-general Tony Hall stated:

This is exactly what the BBC is all about – bringing the industry together on an unprecedented scale and making a difference to millions.

Just as we did with the BBC Micro in the 1980s, we want to inspire the digital visionaries of the future. Only the BBC can bring partners together to attempt something this ambitious, this important to Britain’s future on the world stage.

Moreover, as part of the campaign BBC has also started an apprenticeship for 5000 unemployed people to help boost their skills in the field. The initiative is launched in partnership with Department for Work and Pensions.

Micro Bit, which is the mini-computer BBC is offering children is similar to Raspberry-Pi. However, don’t consider this as BBC’s attempt to penetrate the market. The company claims that they will give one million Micro Bits to children in schools and that’s it. No more Micro Bits will be available to anyone for free or for a price.
