BBC Three makes a range of experimental and innovative content aimed at 16-34 year olds. Since our launch as an online brand, BBC Three has been a multi award-winning pathfinder for the BBC and the wider industry, experimenting with new and unique ways of telling stories across different content forms and formats and with the means of distributing this content to young audiences in the places they are consuming content.
BBC Three content can be found on iPlayer and BBC One as well as across social platforms. The quality of the content has been recognised by audiences and the industry, winning awards such as RTS Channel of The Year, Digital Channel of the Year at the Edinburgh TV Festival and Broadcast Awards, and BAFTAs for shows like This Country, Killed By My Debt, Fleabag and People Just Do Nothing.
It is committed to developing new talent in front of and behind the camera and finding distinct, diverse new voices representative of the whole of the UK. The ambition is for BBC Three to be braver, more provocative and more of the moment than any other part of the BBC, producing content which is uniquely close to its young audience, honed to their passions, locality and life experiences.
