What we want on BBC One

  • Distinctive Formats and Documentary series at 9.15am and 11am – 45 minutes

  • Mainstream quizzes with a new approach at 2:15pm (or later) - 45 minutes

  • Occasional event Drama series at 2.15pm - 45 minutes

  • Factual Entertainment and competition formats at 3.45pm - 45 minutes

What we want on BBC Two

  • Entertainment, Quizzes or Factual Formats, 30 minutes at 6pm and 6.30pm - 15, 20 or 25 episodes

On BBC Two we are looking for 30 minute shows to play at 6pm or 6.30pm. We are looking to offer a mainstream alternative to the news and would like people to think broadly about what is possible rather than trying to replicate what is there already. Commissions may include quizzes but we are also looking for original Factual-Entertainment ideas.
