History and Business priorities on BBC One

  • Singles or series aiming at 60 minute slots around 8pm - 9pm.
  • Very interested in living history formats: Presenters working in pairs or in teams and always on the hunt for new ‘larger than life’ personalities for the audience to latch onto.
  • Stories of universal emotional appeal with a real sense of 'what happened next’ drama from any period – but World War one, World War Two and the classical world all very well subscribed at the moment.
  • Very interested in ‘history mysteries’ - stories which have real journalistic penetration behind them.
  • Not currently looking for Historical ‘disaster’ epics with lots of reconstruction.
