Ideas from the public
Please note: BBC Content (television) does not accept programme ideas from individuals unattached to a production company, although scripts for fiction can be submitted via the BBC Writersroom.
This is because programme development requires an in-depth understanding of the television process and can take a long time to realise, usually involving many people. Unfortunately the BBC doesn’t have the resources to support individuals in this process.
