Digital Growing Pains at the BBC

How is the UK’s oldest broadcaster adapting to meet the needs of an emerging global audience that is learning how to watch TV without a TV? BBC Worldwide Digital Studios is a new team designed to respond to the ways that the future global audiences of the BBC are consuming content. This session will explore their new approach with specific explanations of:

  • Changing the culture of brand building, moving from being a broadcaster to engaging our fans in genuine conversation
  • How evolutions – not revolutions – in storytelling are required to adapt ti an entirely on-demand world
  • Change your editorial (and hiring!) strategy and create shortcuts
  • Publishing on social media platforms to innovate, prototype… and fail… in public
  • Our new approach to the commissioning and creation of digital deliverables (otherwise known as how we’re killing off crap ‘online exclusives’ that nobody wants to make or watch)
