Programme websites: online promotion
Please note programme websites and BBC iPlayer are populated using the standard set of publicity clips, stills and billing information all productions are required to deliver to the BBC as detailed on the Programme production agreement. They therefore only need to be delivered once. Information about the specifications and delivery methods for these assets can be found on the Publicity page.
Every BBC programme has its own webpage on bbc.co.uk which is automatically created seven days prior to the programme transmission. These are sometimes referred to as programme pages or programme websites. Programme websites are a great way for audiences to find out more about programmes, and getting the right information on there in good time will ensure audiences get the most from the programme.
For Children’s programmes please contact the email@example.com.
If a production has additional deliverables or information which might work well for the programme website, please email the Programme Page team to discuss. These might include: additional cast and character profiles, music track lists, behind the scenes or additional footage, information or support.
A clip should be published for each programme as part of the standard production deliverables to populate the programme website and will appear there in perpetuity. They can also be published to expire at a certain date if rights do not permit it to be made available in perpetuity.
Programme clips and the associated compliance information should be delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see the Publicity page for the technical requirements for clips.
Please see the Compliance for TV and online page for information about complying clips.
