Refer to this post, June 30, 2016, and this, from June 27, 2016, for details and background.

I skimmed through the first episode that was shown at 9pm (Eastern) on Friday, July 1, 2016. It was DEFINITELY the 2015 Season/Series 6 with Nadiya, Ian (as in Dalai Lama), Prison Governor Paul Jagger and anaesthetist ‘heart-throb’ Tamal Ray etc. 


This is the Season/Series 6 Bakers
(if YOU have already forgotten).

“Great British Bake Off” (Show) Starting On PBS, Starting Friday, July 1, 2016 — Is It Season 3 or Season 6?

I just [i.e., Thursday, June 30, 2016] had an e-mail from NHPTV.org intimating that the Great British Baking Show starting Friday, July 1, 2016 is NEW and is “Season 3” (a.k.a. “Series 3“).

Though Season 3 was shown on BBC (U.K.) in 2012 I think it would, in theory, be NEW to the U.S. since I am not sure whether PBS/NHPTV ever showed it.

But then it gets confusing. The First Episode is “Cake” and the description — shown below — talks about “Madeira Cake” and “Frosted Walnut Cake“. That was ‘Cake’ from 2015 “Season 6” — not “Season 3”.

“Season 3” cakes were “Upside Down Cake” and “Rum Babas“!

So what will it be: Season 3 or Season/Series 6?


Here is the PBS program description for the July 1, 2016 show.

Did not want you to see the PBS ads and get excited thinking that it was 2016 Series/Season 7.

Season 7 hasn’t aired, as yet, even on BBC. It starts August 2016.

We should, as we did with Season 6, be able to watch it on YouTube 24 hours after it airs in the UK. But this is not a given.


Here is the PBS program description for the July 1, 2016 show.
