The BAFTA-winning Victoria Derbyshire Programme is the centrepiece of domestic daytime TV news, focusing on original journalism, exclusive interviews and audience interaction with regular outside broadcasts and debates as well as delivering breaking domestic and international news. As the BBC’s original ‘digital first’ TV news programme, each bespoke film is commissioned with an online audience in mind, making the best use of the BBC’s social media presence.
The programme, which launched in 2015, has its own award-winning reporters and planning producers. Producers from the BBC News Channel also work on the programme in the morning as it goes out.
The Junior Production Manager is central to the smooth operation and day to day running of the production. The role involves a wide range of responsibilities including managing budgets, resources including freelance crews as well as logistics for OBs and involvement with recruitment processes, leave and solving rota problems.
