- Target duration for longform is 45 minutes
- We also commission blocks of short-form content. See the BBC Three short-form page for further information.
Current Affairs is a crucial part of BBC Three’s ‘Make Me Think’ output. BBC iPlayer has so far been a huge hit for BBC Three online, with Stacey Dooley’s Sex in Strange Places doing very well.
We are always looking for quality content of any duration which will create a real buzz or be instantly shareable on social media.
It must feel potentially memorable, surprising and fresh. What is the audience going to be thinking next?
We are also looking for BBC Three’s next reputational landmarks, series for 2017/18, grabby foreign reportage, and domestic journalistic down to earth stories which feel either real and close to the audience, or so surprising or intriguing you simply must click.
