ABOUT

BBC Three has a unique role to play in public service television. It is the only youth-focused channel with a regular commitment to news, current affairs and serious documentaries.

It is the only channel tackling politics for the young through its General Election coverage and, over the next few months, the channel will show documentaries on the war in Afghanistan, child trafficking, autism, the use of rape as a weapon of war in the Congo, bullying and the life of Nelson Mandela.

No other youth-focused British channel makes programmes like these on a consistent basis. And with the channel growing 30% in the last two years, we know that young people like the ways in which we approach these subjects and find them thought-provoking and stimulating.

On average, 29-million people watch the channel each month and BBC Three now reaches more young people in its broadcast hours than any other digital channel.
