Content sits at the heart of the business and forms the backbone of its commercial and creative success.

The Content partnerships team works closely with BBC Studios production capabilities to ensure a rich and varied catalogue of titles by driving and delivering the company’s programme investment strategy and relationships – this includes arranging and making investment into new commissions and returning programmes, producing and commissioning content and creating formats from the UK to our production studios in France, Norway, India and the USA. The team also plays a pivotal role in nurturing new talent both on and off screen while exploring new commercial ideas and opportunities.
