Watch Bruce Forsyth Tribute Bruce A Celebration Anywhere

One of the most beloved entertainers in British history will receive a tribute to his storied career this winter. Bruce A Celebration will honour Bruce Forsyth on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer.

Unfortunately this tribute to one of the nation’s most beloved figures is a UK exclusive and unavailable around the world, due to the BBC’s policy of geo-restricting their content to viewers currently outside the UK. Fortunately there is an easy solution to this quandary. Read below to find out how Liberty Shield can unlock Bruce A Celebration, and so much more content, where you are.
