Jan Younghusband discusses Music & Events on BBC Four

Commissioning Editor: Jan Younghusband


BBC Four is a real playground for music lovers so we need to reveal the greatness in the unexpected eg folk, dance and symphony.

We're looking for noisier, edgier, debatable stories that can help raise awareness of Music on BBC Four.

Ideas that build on the success of the channel as a home for classical and popular music are welcome.

We require real experts with strongly held opinions and we're very open to new on screen talent matter. Often programmes work best on BBC Four when they take a radically different approach to a very familiar subject.

Find out more about the overall BBC Four channel strategy.

Commissioning Opportunities

BBC Four is also interested in commissioning original documentary singles around which we can place archive films to make nights and seasons, as well as series.

Where are the opportunities available?

There are opportunities in the In-House guarantee, Indie guarantee and the WoCC in 14/15 and 15/16.  There is money pointed towards the Nations in all categories.

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

All proposals should be submitted via e-Commissioning to the relevant Genre Controller or Commissioner.
