BB3 and BBC England are partnering to champion local production companies in the North of England who want to tell unique and regional stories that can appeal to the whole of the UK.
The Northern Voices scheme is seeking documentary ideas from independent production companies based in the North of England that reflect the life experiences of 16-24 year-olds in the region and include new young talent (on and off screen).
Up to four indies will be shortlisted to enter a period of paid development and project scoping. BBC Three and BBC England will commission one company to produce a one-off documentary of around 30 minutes.
Initial submissions for this opportunity will be accepted between 4th May and 5th June 2020.
