BBC ALBA serves up a brilliant mix of kids’ shows and cartoons to Gaelic-speaking children under the CBeebies ALBA and CBBC ALBA brands.
We want every one of our young viewers to be able to see their lives and language reflected back to them and are placing greater emphasis on live-action formats that connect in an immediate and relatable way.
We are currently seeking proposals for original live-action formats tailored specifically for our CBBC ALBA audience (aged 7-12).
The genres we are interested in are:
Comedy and entertainment
The project will have a funding contribution from MG ALBA of £150,000.
We also expect that as a minimum, the successful company will apply for match-funding to the BFI’s Young Audience Content Fund as well as for UK tax credits.
The successful project will be expected to produce and deliver in this financial year.
Final submissions and any questions should be addressed to Claire MacDonald: email@example.com
Deadline for submission – Friday 11th June 2021 at 5pm.
Deadline for MG ALBA/BBC partnership decisions – Friday 25th June 2021 at 5pm.
