Religion and Ethics on BBC Two

Commissioning slots 

  • Immersive journeys/formats/observation: 3 x 60 minutes at 9pm
  • Non blue-chip clever three-part series. Can be formatted but needs to be relevant to Britain today. A Very British Wedding did this well previously.


Background information

BBC Two is the home of our most diverse Religion and Ethics output and is at its best when it takes a mixed approach to subjects, genres and styles.

The Channel aims to compliment the heartland appeal of programmes like the Island Parish franchise with more complex offers that engage the viewer, take them out of their comfort zone and demand more from them intellectually.

The Life of MuhammadWestminster Abbey and The Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World have all worked well for the channel.
