Mark Bell talks about the Arts development priorities on BBC Two

Commissioning Editor: Mark Bell


BBC Two Arts offers genuinely fresh insight, revelations and new angles on big or familiar subjects.

Subjects need to be big enough to engage a broad audience, but the approach should deliver a sense of discovery. Arts on BBC Two should make connections with other disciplines (for example, science, geography, society, as well as history).

Ideas are rarely commissioned that don’t offer a new take or a definitive line on a subject that has name recognition.

Commissioning Slots

  • Landmarks - series of 3–6 × 60' or more, high impact singles and events 

Where are the opportunities available?

Opportunities are available in the 2013/14 and 2014/15 in the WoCC.

How should I submit my ideas and who should I pitch to?

All proposals should be submitted via the e-commissioning system to the relevant genre controller or commissioner. Take a look at the Who's Who for the latest arts commissioning team contacts.
