BBC Radio 3

The remit of Radio 3 is to offer a mix of music and cultural programming in order to engage and entertain its audience.

Around its core proposition of classical music, its speech-based programming should inform and educate the audience about music and culture. Jazz, world music, drama, the arts and ideas and religious programming should feature in its output.

The service should appeal to listeners of any age seeking to expand their cultural horizons through engagement with the world of music and the arts.

Current service licence

The Trust reissued BBC service licences in April 2014 with an amended annual budget for the financial year 2014/15. The new budget reflects any approvals already given by the Trust including those within the Delivering Quality First strategy. The relevant licences also now reflect the Trust’s approval of a 30 day window for TV content on iPlayer.
