BBC’S DAYTIME TV WAS ONE OF THE MAJOR FACTORS IN OVERTAKING ITV AS THE MOST POPULAR CHANNEL 2000 AND ONWARDS.

BBC2 schedule shows that in the early hours of the morning They show programmes such as travels centaury, BBC news, Being Chinese and telling tales. This finishes at 6 am when children's TV starts to be shown, programmes such as Tikkabilla, Our planet, Big cook little cook and Arthur. Then is carries on with programmes that are quite randomised such as newsround, big and small, Finley the fire engine, pingu and science clips, The daily politics, Flog it and A question of genius. this is BBC2 daytime TV The evening TV shows programmes such as the Horizon, The culture show, Newsnight and high altitude. I think BBC2 isn’t aimed at any particular audience as the programmes are all quite randomized.

Public service broadcasting is, or should be something more than a collection of Programmes designed to meet the requirements of particular groups. It is an approach to broadcasting that at its best, treats the listener as a citizen and Not just as a consumer, and treats programmes as social and cultural goods, Not commodities

The channel is described by the BBC as an outlet for 'New drama, talent, comedy, films, and accessible news'. The channel is on-air from 7 O’clock pm to about 5 O’clock am each night, in order to share terrestrial television bandwidth with the CBBC Channel.

The channel covers genres, from current affairs, to drama, to comedy to animation. BBC Three has a unique '60 second news' format. This was adopted so that operation of the channel could be completely automated, without the complication of dealing with variable length live news broadcasts. The current controller of the station is Danny Cohnn and the Head of Scheduling is Dan McGolpin.

The channel features hourly news updates called 60 Seconds, which includes the top news, sport and entertainment stories. As part of the BBC's discussions with the government in whether the channel could launch originally, a longer news programme had been promised to provide a daily section of news and current affairs. The News Show, as it came to be called upon launch was later rebranded The 7 O'Clock News. However, the BBC discontinued the bulletin in 2005, claiming that in fact, the programme's audiences were minuscule and the output was provided elsewhere on the BBC. Popular programmes on the channel include Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps (the channel's longest running comedy), The Mighty Boosh, Coming of Age and Family Guy. In May 2007 the channel aired the new sitcom Gavin & Stacey written by and staring Ruth Jones and James Corden. Also reality TV show Last Man Standing narrated by Ralf Little. BBC Three is also home to many pan-psychology based programmes which bring topics such as addictions and childcare into an entertainment and educational context. Such programmes include Freaky Eaters, Spendaholics, House of Tiny Tearways, Sex..with Mum & Dad, Little Angels, Little Angels with Tanya Byron and Teen Angels. New shows commissioned included Lily Allen and Friends, a variety show based on social networking, hosted by Lily Allen. And a series of "hard-hitting" documentaries aimed at a young audience and six new drama pilots, Phoo Action (which is to be made into a full series), Being Human (which has now been made into a series), , West 10 LDN, and Dis/Connected.

The channel is aimed at 15-34 year olds, and competes with other digital channels including ITV2 and E4. Its share of the audience during its transmission hours is 2.6% among 15-34 year olds, and 1.7% among all individuals. BARB, the official ratings agency, averages out BBC Three's viewing figures over 24 hours even though the channel only broadcasts in the evening, giving a distorted sense of the channel's viewership. Despite several official complaints from the BBC, BARB continues to publish figures which the BBC argues are unrepresentative. Nine million people watch BBC Three every week.

Table showing the amount of viewers, the channel has seen since 2003
