The Entertainment portfolio on BBC Two continues to work really well, ranging from panel shows to factual entertainment formats.
The channel has always welcomed adventurous, cutting-edge ideas and formats that become much-loved features of the TV landscape. Many of our shows are talent-led and passionate expertise can also be key to bringing an audience to new shows.

The challenge for entertainment on BBC Two is to continue to bring younger audiences (25 - 44 year olds) to the channel without alienating the older heartland.
Factual-based formats have achieved this in the past by providing immersive experiences with strong entertainment values (which attracts younger viewers) whilst being set in an world which gives older viewers (over 55s) 'permission to watch'.
Tonally, the BBC Two audience appreciates something that creates a conversation with them and includes them in new experiences as well as telling a compelling story with strong entertainment values.
They also want content which prompts knowing smiles as well as laugh out loud moments.
