BBC Earth is a global portfolio brand that invites audiences everywhere to engage with the wonders of our universe. We bring amazing content, experiences and interactions to the world, across multiple platforms – premium content, branded channels, live events, digital and social media, Augemented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), theatrical releases for cinema and giant screen films, and consumer products.
We believe that celebrating and connecting with our world is more important than ever, across nature, science, space and the human race. We and our partners are continually innovating to find new stories and experiences to bring insight, enlightenment and fresh perspectives to inspire us to think and feel differently about our world. From the epic to the everyday, BBC Earth brings you face to face with heart pounding action, mind blowing ideas and the sheer wonder of being part of this amazing planet we call home. Commercially and internationally the brand is managed by BBC Worldwide.
In addition to the current digital portfolio, we would like to create new audio formats and products using our vast catalogue of BBC Earth’s audio and sounds of nature. Hence, we would like to work with innovative teams with creative audio products ideas and technology to publish them at scale. We are looking for the next generation and experimental audio products. So, think beyond traditional podcasts and audiobooks, and perhaps combine audio with AR and VR.
We want to unlock new value of the existing audio IP, as measured by increased revenues from content sales, distribution, and advertising opportunities. Therefore, your proposals should demonstrate how the products will increase existing engagement, generate new audiences, and unlock our audio Intellectual Properties value. Please take a look at our BBC Earth Unplugged YouTube channel for some inspiration.
Successful applicants will be awarded an opportunity to pitch and pilot their formats and content to BBC Worldwide Global Brands and to our partners on a Right of First Refusal or Rights of First Offer basis. If successful, we will offer a partnership on a revenue and / or licensing basis.
If your pitch is not successful on this occasion, we would like to enter your details to our “Digital Pioneers Collection” and call on your talent when new opportunities arise.
