Current affairs on BBC Two
Gian Quaglieni outlines his top commissioning needs for July 2016
- Series ideas of scale and ambition for 2017/18 which can go into production soon
- Foreign affairs singles for This World
We want our commissions to start national conversations with fresh, impactful or ‘zeitgeisty’ approaches which could feel cross-genre.
We want every film or series we make to answer important questions with clarity and precision journalism, offering high quality take-out for a broad but discerning BBC Two audience.
They should feel lean-in and distinctive for BBC Two. They can be presenter-led or feature real people, but the ideas and thoughts unpacked need to be complex and intellectually stimulating, reflecting and charting events and change in the UK and around the world.
We are placing a special emphasis on diversity of on-screen characters to reflect the entire UK.
This World is BBC Two's brand for foreign affairs singles and we are looking to commission ideas which offer either strong access or a unique journalistic insight into major foreign affairs stories of the moment.
