The BBC aims to bring the best international movies and programmes to its audiences.
The Programme Acquisitions team buy and manage fiction such as series and feature films while factual programmes are acquired through the Factual Acquisition and Storyville teams. Entertainment acquires specific events auch as the Grammys and MOBOs.
Storyville commissioning priorities
Ground breaking films with compelling narratives and strong characters, which though international in scope, have themes that touch us all.
No turkeys, no worthiness and no dullness.
