“Priest School” aired on BBC Scotland on April 19 and received the highest audience for any digital channel in Scotland – 80,000 people and an 8 percent share. As a comparison, BBC Scotland’s flagship drama “River City” only received a maximum of 30,000 viewers on the channel. “I’m delighted with the reaction to the documentary,” said Deacon Ryan Black, who is studying for the priesthood for the Diocese of Paisley. He noted that even after the initial good showing, the viewing figures are actually climbing, due to the hourlong documentary’s availability on the BBC iPlayer. Originally due to be available for 30 days after broadcast, the BBC extended that to 11 months due to the positive response.
