History and Business steers on BBC One

  • Seeking singles or series aiming at 60 minute slots 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.

  • Not currently looking for Historical ‘disaster’ epics with lots of reconstruction.

  • How do we mark moments of national significance in a BBC One way – combining scale with emotion?

History and Business steers on BBC Two

  • Singles or series aiming at 60 minute slots around 8pm - 9pm.

  • Low cost formats especially offering debate or living History immersion that can work at 8pm as well as 9pm.

  • Want more variety, too much defaults to the 'Presenter led' landmark, we want more ‘treats’ (self contained narratives full of pleasure), more danger/adventure.
