Controller Sessions


Meet the Controller: Damian Kavanagh, BBC3

BBC Three went online over a year ago, it marked its anniversary by winning the coveted RTS award for ‘Channel of the Year’, as well as countless awards including several BAFTA’s.

Hosted by Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw – whose network has the biggest radio station on YouTube in the world – we look at the rapidly changing way in which we consume media. How has the online move affected its content, schedules, budget, and talent? How do you produce TV for social platforms?

Damian and other BBC commissioners will explore what has worked, what hasn’t and what is planned for the future.
