BBC Choice is rebranding tomorrow as BBC3. In advance of the change, this evening is dedicated to a taster of the programming on the new channel.
Aimed at the 25-34 age group, BBC3 promises a blend of news, current affairs, drama, entertainment, music, arts, science and animation.
Programmes previewed this evening include new comedy by some of the brightest young names in entertainment - including Dom Joly in his own series, Charlie Higson starring in "Swiss Toni", Steve Coogan creations Paul and Pauline Calf and Johnny Vaughan fronting another series of his chat show.
There's contemporary drama "Burn It" (from the makers of "Queer as Folk" and "Linda Green" ), documentaries on celebrities such as Vinnie Jones and the Beckhams, animated series "Monkey Dust" and the science show "Body Hits".
Will BBC3 turn YOU on?: pp 14-18, which includes features, previews, a readers' questionnaire and the verdicts of the stars
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
