In February 2015, the Audience Council Northern Ireland submitted advice to the BBC Trust, to help inform its public value test [PVT] on the BBC’s proposal to reinvent BBC Three as an online (only) service, alongside changes to a number of other BBC services. The Council’s advice reflected its understanding of local audiences, and insights gained through Council members’ own networks and a programme of direct engagement with younger audiences focused specifically on the proposals.This paper is the Audience Council’s response to the BBC Trust’s consultation on its provisional conclusions on the BBC’s proposals, with a particular focus on BBC Three, drawing on our advice to the Trust’s public value test and the Council’s discussion on the Trust’s provisional conclusions.
