BBC Three

BBC Three

BBC Three is the corporation's youth channel, available via digital platforms including Freeview. The channel broadcasts comedy aimed at the 25 to 34-year-old age group. Many of the comedies on this channel are quite experimental in nature - BBC3 is now often used as a test bed for nurturing hit comedies for BBC Two and BBC One. Whilst many shows on BBC Three pass without notice, an equal number of the comedies have met viewer approval and gone on to become well-known. Little Britain, Gavin & Stacey, Two Pints, The Mighty Boosh, Him & Her and Russell Howard's Good News are probably the channel's biggest hits to date.
