This year’s Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival will feature sessions with the Controllers of BBC One, Two & Four and Three. Full details of all BBC related announcements, including links to press releases and showreels will appear here.
Over the next few days, Charlotte Moore (BBC One), Janice Hadlow (BBC Two and BBC Four) and Zai Bennett (BBC Three) will outline the plans for their channels for the coming year.
At last year’s Festival, BBC Two won the coveted Channel of the Year Award, while BBC Four was named Best Digital Channel and Sherlock picked up the accolade for Best Programme. I’m determined to build on this success – and others such as our recent haul of BAFTAs and RTS Awards – by delivering programmes with the finest storytelling and the highest quality production techniques, whilst also ensuring there is something to grip everyone who pays the licence fee.
As Director of Television, ensuring all audiences find something they love across our channels is extremely important and I hope that as this page updates throughout the Festival you’ll see plans that excite you as much as they do me. – Danny Cohen
The BBC will release further details in due course.
