The BAFTA winning Learning Zone commissions dozens of new educational films every year to inspire children and young people. These include original Dramas, Animations and Documentaries, as well as reversions of some of the BBC's landmark series such as Brian Cox's Wonders of Life.
The films combine great visual story telling with engaging curriculum-related content. They are generally between five and 15 minutes in length and are designed to provide the stimulus for a lesson or discussion in the classroom and beyond.
The films are broadcast as compilations on BBC Two between 4am and 6am, then made available online as short films. To view our multi award-winning content, and to find out more visit the Learning Zone website.
As well as publishing briefs regularly, we also operate rolling commissioning, and we are always open to imaginative approaches to the curriculum, provided there is a clear gap or need. For more information contact Executive Producer Katy Jones.
