Jan Younghusband discusses Music & Events on BBC Two

Commissioning Editor: Jan Younghusband

Commissioning Opportunities

  • Seeking acquisitions in rock Documentaries
  • Interested in exploring Format series ideas for 2016
  • Saturday night 60 or 90 minute Event Documentaries through 2015/16
  • Exceptional series ideas and original Formats welcomed for the longer term future


Where are the opportunities available?

The channel works in partnership with BBC Four and across BBC Radio so ideas that play across channels and which might have a radio aspect to create immersive seasons are welcomed.


BBC Two is the home for music inspiration, intelligent takes on music as well as pure pleasure. This year the channel is specialising in single, high production value films which look at pivotal moments of music history in a more forensic way. 

Find out more about the overall BBC Two channel strategy.


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