Supervising Producer - BBC Three
BBC Three is the first public service broadcast channel to transition to a digital-first service. We make a range of experimental and innovative content created just for 16-34 year olds. Since our launch as an online brand, BBC Three has been a true pathfinder for the BBC and the wider industry, experimenting with new and unique ways of telling stories across different content forms and formats and with the means of distributing this content to young audiences in the places they are consuming content. Knowing that their media consumption is increasingly fragmented, were making sure that BBC Three content can be found on a variety of platforms, whether that is BBC One or Two, iPlayer, YouTube or social platforms. The quality of much of the content has been recognised by audiences and the industry, winning awards such as RTS Channel of The Year, Broadcast Digital Channel of the Year and BAFTAs for shows like Fleabag, Murdered by my Father and People Just Do Nothing. It is our ambition through BBC Three to be braver, more provocative and more of the moment than any other part of the BBC in an effort to engage and build our relationship with younger audiences.
