BBC Three Winter/Spring 2008
Lily Allen And Friends
Lily Allen hosts her own show, based on the social-networking phenomenon that helped to launch her career. Viewers are invited to become Lily's virtual friends and shape the show by contributing to topical discussions, putting questions to guests and even featuring in parts of the programme.
The audience consists entirely of Lily's online friends, who have signed up at bbc.co.uk/lilyallen. The website also hosts exclusive video content from Lily, which the audience can add to their own social-network profiles and websites.
Guests include the hottest celebrities, topical guests from the online world, chart-topping bands and lesser-known acts chosen by Lily and members of her network. Lily Allen And Friends also follows the progress of the new music acts showcased on the programme.
Presented by Scott Mills, Upstaged is a new, unique and innovative interactive entertainment show open to anyone in the UK who thinks they're worth watching. It begins life as an exclusive online event before the simultaneous TV series commences.
Members of the public audition online for a chance to perform on stages located inside two specially-built glass boxes on display in Bristol's Millennium Square. The online community votes for who entertains them the most, and the least popular of the two acts is replaced every day throughout the run.
For the first five weeks Upstaged is streamed exclusively on the web, whilst the last three weeks are accompanied by the TV show. Using social networking, Upstaged lets the online community determine who they want to watch and who they don't.
All the key decisions – who takes to the stage, what's considered to be entertaining and who earns the right to stay each day – are totally in the hands of the public.
Jam-packed with brand-new comedy acts alongside established performers, cutting-edge music and the hottest celebrity guests, The Wall is the ultimate destination for all-round entertainment.
The weekly action, broadcast live from BBC Television Centre, revolves around a vast video wall which acts as a gateway for viewers to get involved with the hosts, guests and performers from the comfort of their own homes.
At the click of a button, viewers can interact with the show whilst it's on air, submitting comments on the action and questions for guests as well as their own comedy clips and punchlines. The best contributions become part of the show and feature on the all-important video wall.
