Documentaries for the BBC

Authoritative entertainment for demanding audiences

We’ve got a factual team that creates surprising documentary content, including multiple programmes for BBC Radio 4.

It doesn’t end with the broadcast content. We work hard on bringing these stories to life across platforms, building interaction with audiences through social media campaigns, special online content and interviews.

Our documentaries included the 42-part series for Radio 4 1914: Day by Day, supported by a social media campaign that used specially-commissioned cartoon content from Ralph Steadman, Steve Bell and Posy Simmonds. The Open Air series, five programmes featuring five artists, caught large audiences right after the Today programme while the one-off Travelling the Spaceways: The Cult of Sun Ra presented by Jez Nelson targeted a music audience for Radio 4.

With additional content including graphic illustrations, animations, interviews and films, we’ve created documentary content that is shareable and interactive.
