Over the next few days at the Edinburgh International TV Festival , Charlotte Moore (BBC One controller), Janice Hadlow (BBC Two and BBC Four controller) and Zai Bennett (BBC Three controller) will outline the plans for their channels for the coming year.
There will be posts from them on this blog, showreels and a selection of announcements posted on the BBC Media Centre site.
At last year’s Festival, BBC Two won the coveted Channel of the Year Award, while BBC Four was named Best Digital Channel. Sherlock picked up the accolade for Best Programme.
I'm determined to build on this success – and others such
as our recent haul of BAFTA's and RTS Awards – by delivering programmes with
the finest storytelling and the highest quality production techniques, whilst
also ensuring there is something to grip everyone who pays the licence fee.
As Director of Television, ensuring all audiences find something they love across our channels is extremely important. I hope that via the updates throughout the Festival you’ll see plans that excite you as much as they do me for the coming year.
Danny Cohen is Director, Television
