Keynote: Channel of the Year 2020

In conversation with BBC Three, Controller Fiona Campbell explains how the channel delivers innovative new formats and thought-provoking programmes, which have succeeded in attracting hard-to-reach young audiences to the BBC.

Panel: How does BBC Three find new talent?

One of BBC Three’s big successes is how it works with independent producers to develop new formats. Commissioning editors and independent producers from hits such as RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Rap Game and Glow Up reveal the nuts and bolts of finding talent, moulding new ideas and how to attract young under-served audiences to their programmes.

  • Ricky Cooper: Commissioning editor, Popular Factual. Commissioned the multiple award nominated BBC Three series The Rap Game UK, Krept & Konan and DJ Target put a host of upcoming rappers through their paces.
