Looking For

Pitching to BBC

BBC Pitch is the tool by which UK based television production companies and BBC in-house production teams can submit content proposals for BBC network television.

Eligible companies must register for a BBC Pitch account before submitting a proposal and must read and accept the BBC Pitch terms and conditions. Please see the Eligibility criteria section for further information.  

Please note, individuals not affiliated with an independent production company cannot register to use BBC Pitch, please see the Ideas from the public page instead.

Those wishing to submit ideas for BBC Radio should visit the separate Radio section of the site and please see the Online section to find out how to submit digital and technology ideas. 

BBC Pitch is part of BBC Television’s commitment to improve the commissioning process, enabling BBC commissioners to consider programme ideas more efficiently. It is designed to simplify the process of managing and tracking proposals and allows the BBC to monitor whether it is correctly operating within the Code of practice.

The system does not replace any of the creative conversations with BBC commissioning teams, it is simply a way to manage ideas better. BBC Television receives up to 10,000 proposals a year and time with commissioners is limited so meetings will always be based upon the merit of the proposal submitted through BBC Pitch.
