With the sweeping changes that have hit the BBC, meaning that cutbacks and redundancies swept through the news and current departments, while when comes to BBC 3 the opposite seems to apply causing much anger within the BBC.
But BBC 3 has a growing audience and now with a new controller Danny Cohen the new style changes will be coming into effect, with new programmes from both here and the US being aired, as well as old favourites like Heroes and Gavin & Stacy.
In another innovative move, all programmes will be shown simultaneously on digital TV and online. There has also been an improved viewer experience with user generated content. These changes and the additional access to the channel through the internet and other sources all leads to the growing audience that just keeps growing.
