Programme Interests

Factual digital commissioning


The purpose of factual digital content is to help a wide range of younger audiences appreciate, enjoy, understand and challenge the world around them. The digital content we commission can be related to existing longform TV programmes, or standalone original commissions designed for online and social platforms. 

Factual is not tied to one specific brand or channel outlet. Instead we work with digital and social publishing partners across the BBC and beyond including BBC OneTwoThreeFour, News, SportChildren’sRadio 1 and many more. Platforms include iPlayerYouTube and social.


Digital commissioning generally falls into one of three areas:

When there is an opportunity to extend the audience experience on to digital platforms.

Where there is a need for additional digital content alongside a wide range of programming across BBC TV, Radio and Online.

Where we see an opportunity for factual content on digital platforms that is not currently being served by other parts of the BBC.
