Programme Interests

Short-form ideas

Shorter, social and new-form ideas targeted at YouTube or iPlayer only should be pitched to Nasfim Haque, Commissioning Editor BBC Three apart from scripted comedy ideas. Shorter scripted comedy ideas should be pitched to Sarah Asante, Assistant Commissioner for BBC comedy via BBC Pitch.

We will publish our short-form where audiences are most likely to find it including BBC Three, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp, Snapchat and others. While we will target UK audiences, some of these sites will be accessible globally. 

The following is not an exhaustive or definitive list but outlines our direction of travel and demonstrates how we are innovating with new genre areas and different forms of storytelling for our audience.

These ideas come in a variety of forms:

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.
