BBC Four is a real playground for music lovers, so here we need to reveal the greatness in the unexpected - e.g. folk, dance, symphony.
How the Brits Rocked America: Go West: This three-part series brought together great archive, interviews and music to give audiences a rich sense of this incredibly successful era for British music.
Putting modern classical music into context, The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Music made real sense of the genre for audiences. With enthusiasm and ambition, it wove an enticing thread through an often misunderstood period musical history.
Symphony: This four-part series presented by Simon Russell Beale gave audiences an engaging and intelligent way in to the world of symphonic music. Viewers loved making new historical connections and getting to know the stories behind these iconic compositions and their composers.
A real nostalgia trip, The Joy of the Single featured a great range of voices and surprising stories.
We're looking for noisier, edgier, debatable stories in music 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.
BBC Four is also interested in commissioning original documentary singles around which we can place archive films to make nights and seasons.
There are opportunities in the In-House guarantee, Indie guarantee and the WoCC in 13/14 and 14/15. There is money pointed towards the Nations in all categories.
