Unique partnership with the BBC
For over half a century, the OU and the BBC have been co-producing inspirational content with a mission to bring learning to life for millions of people.
Our partnership began in the early 1970s as an innovative mission to provide access to learning at scale via late-night lectures beamed into people's homes. Continuing to adapt with the changing times, it still inspires leading learning from a range of co-produced and awarding-winning content – like Sir David Attenborough's Blue Planet II and A Perfect Planet.
The Open University has a vast range of academic expertise, and whatever partnership content we are co-producing benefits from our experts' specialist knowledge. OU academics consult throughout the entire production process.
