The initiative will offer four participants the chance to produce and direct their first long form documentary for BBC Three, with the hope of finding and showcasing the next generation of documentary makers.

Many successful, award-winning documentaries have been created as a result of the initiative, including Manchester Bomb: Our Story, Abused by my Girlfriend, Why Dad Killed Mum: My Family’s Secret, and Defending Digga D.
