Fremantle Media is to distribute archive shows on video download and clips website Blinkbox.com.

The super-indie has signed a deal to make more than 160 shows available on the site, including children's shows Rainbow, Dangermouse and Count Duckula as well as US show Baywatch and the first series of soap Falcon Beach.

All shows will be offered as clips and on a pay-to-download basis to rent or own.

Discovery, Zodiak and 3DD are also among the providers of TV content already signed up to the service, which will have its full launch next month.
