Aaqil Ahmed talks about the Religion & Ethics development priorities on BBC One

Head of Commissioning: Aaqil Ahmed


Religion and Ethics on BBC One is for mainstream audiences. It is the home of Christian worship and major faith festivals and has its finger on the pulse of religious and ethical debate, primarily through its Sunday morning output.

On BBC One, Religion and Ethics should open up the world for our audiences, providing access to the diverse people and stories of faith across the country.

Commissioning Slots

  • Break Out series
  • Stand out singles 1 x 60 minutes at 10.35pm
  • Co-production opportunities 2 - 3 x 60 minutes Daytime/Christian holidays
  • Songs of Praise Specials (part of strand)

Where are the opportunities available?

The BBC One religion slate is primarily dedicated to returning strands and religious events.  However, for the right idea as mentioned above, there is the potential to find funding in the WoCC for 2014/15 and 2015/16.

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.
