BBC Three The remit of BBC Three is to bring younger audiences to high-quality public service broadcasting through a mixed-genre

schedule of innovative UK content featuring new UK talent. The channel should use the full range of digital platforms to deliver its content and to build an interactive relationship with its audience. BBC Three is aimed at a younger audience between the ages of 16 and 34. In order to appeal to this audience, the programmes feature many younger and less experienced actors. It shows a wide range of different programmes with a lot of them being comedy based. They include programmes like Family Guy, Bad Education and Russell Howards Good News. However a lot of documentaries are also aired on this channel including Unsafe Sex in the City and Extreme OCD Camp. Both of these examples feature teenagers and young adults and are clearly aimed at a younger age group. Although they would have the same target audience as us, BBC three doesnt provide any documentaries in the same genre of our documentary. BBC Three is on air between 7pm and around 5am every night. This is so they can share the terrestrial television bandwidth with CBBC. This limits the amount of programmes they can show in a day very drastically and some programmes are shown very late at night. This is ideal in some ways as young people are notorious for staying up late but it wouldnt be appropriate for a documentary. After looking at the schedule for this channel it is evident that documentaries are usually aired once at around 8pm and then again at around 1am. BBC Three will not be suitable to air our documentary because there arent many documentaries that are shown on this channel and the ones that they do offer dont have any similar content to our documentary. This could mean that BBC Threes audience may not like the content of our documentary. Therefore a channel with more programmes on a relevant topic would be more suitable to air our documentary.
