Reaching even more people around the world...
The BBC World Service is currently undergoing its biggest ever expansion, adding twelve new language services and investing more into digital innovation, increasing its TV output and expanding its overseas operations. The aim is make the BBC’s trusted news and content more accessible to audiences around the world – specifically, to reach 500 million people worldwide by the BBC’s 100th anniversary in 2022.
A multilingual project on a global scale, the launch of multiple TV programmes is driving audience growth, but also has many challenges.
The World Service team responsible for the TV strategy will share experiences and insights across editorial, production and technical areas.
