Advert: BBC iPlayer – Always There When You Need It
Music: The Smiths – This Charming Man
BBC iPlayer promises to be there when you need it, in bedrooms, at bus stops, and in break rooms, in this new TV trailer ad. The song is the all-time indie classic This Charming Man by The Smiths, written by Morrissey and Johnny Marr. This is the single version, produced by John Porter and released in October 1983. It originally peaked at number 25 in the UK charts in 1983, but reached number 8 when it was re-released in 1992. It’s available to download from iTunes.
