  8. 8. Slide 10 The BBC brand network – some points to note 2 – We’ve deliberately created a network …not a hierarchy (although there are implications for prioritisation within the network) 1 - We refer to things in the network as ‘properties’ as not all the genres/service/products in the portfolio are brands
  9. 9. Slide 11 The BBC brand network – some points to note All our properties fall into one of 3 categories, according to the role they play for audiences 1 Variants of the BBC Primarily for driving BBC reputation through genres or giving people more control. A facet of the BBC overall, strongly linked to the BBC in values and identity e.g. BBC Drama 2 Sub-brands of the BBC Primarily help audiences navigate the portfolio but can also drive reputation. Have an identity and (potentially) values which are further away from the BBC Masterbrand e.g. Radio 1 3 BBC Content/ experiences The things people consume e.g. Dr Who. The foundations on which the variants, sub- brands or the Masterbrand are built.

  16. 16. Slide 18 We need to break these categories down further to be useful. We’ve done this using the following criteria; Which gives us 3 sub-groups Catalysts for driving mass change either by enhancing our reputation or consumption Catalysts for driving targeted change either by enhancing our reputation or consumption Properties unlikely to drive wholesale change Help maintain current objectives, but are not catalysts for enhancing our reputation or driving consumption PERFORMANCE DATA (INC SEM- the cogs) OUR PUBLIC SERVICE PRIORITIES A TOTAL PORTFOLIO VIEW
