BBC moves show from online to TV


by David Allen

The series of webisodes known as Fresh, started off on the BBC website for teenagers Switch and was shown as five-minute long videos.

But now the show has been so successful that BBC3 has commissioned a series of seven thirty-minute episodes.

According to the BBC, Fresh is the first series to have started off online and then made the move to TV, all be it on digital satellite TV.

This series is centred around a university, where students get their first tastes of freedom and independence.

It is easy to see how such a programmes could warrant being switched from online to TV, as long as there is enough content to keep the audience interested, but running a series of five-minute videos, is a world away from a series of thirty-minute videos.
