BBC Scotland is the main public service broadcaster serving Scottish audiences through television, radio and online. It produces a range of TV programmes for BBC One Scotland and BBC Two Scotland as well as for the BBC's UK network services.
There is an absolute requirement for some discernible Scottish dimension to any project. That aside, factual programmes range from observational documentary to specialist factual, particularly history, and the arts. This includes series, singles and feature docs.
Open to projects on a diverse range of subjects in whatever broadcast configuration is most appropriate.
