Difference between main and sister channels?

BBC Two - It covers a wide range of subject matters, but tending towards more "highbrow" programmes than the more mainstream and popular BBC One.

BBC Three - providing "innovative" content to younger audiences, focusing on new talent and new technologies.

BBC Four - The channel shows "a wide variety of programmes including drama, documentaries, music, international film, original programmes, comedy and current affairs ... an alternative to programmes on the mainstream TV channels.

BBC News - 24-hour rolling news television network in the United Kingdom.

BBC Parliament - to make accessible to all the work of the parliamentary and legislative bodies of the United Kingdom and the European Parliament.

CBBC – Sister service for children.

Target audienceBBC One would have a wide audience because of the variety of programmes that the channel shows. BBC shows programmes which are specifically focused towards certain people, for example shows like Match of the Day is aimed to sports fans.

Another example for children and adults would be Doctor who as it is a more family based tv show.

How does this channel compare to other channels?

In comparison to BBC Three, I would say that BBC One has a wider audience because of the variety of programmes it shows which appeal to everyone. BBC Three, on the other hand, is aimed at a more young adult audience with shows such as, ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid’ and ‘Sun, Sex and suspicious parents’. These programmes are very much about entertainment rather than education.
