Research & Development

Stories work stream

We are researching new ways of representing stories on the web, aiming to enhance the understanding and enjoyment of the stories that the BBC tells.

We start by breaking stories up into storylines, characters and moments and storing these as data. We have developed a common data model for stories, designed to work across any drama or soap on TV and radio, or even to tell the stories in factual programmes and news. We are building tools to help production teams create this data and we are using this data to prototype new experiences to tell these stories to the audience.
