Welcome to The Open University Broadcast Media Sales

Our portfolio of programmes combines the expertise of programme makers with the academic excellence of The Open University, one of the UK's leading universities. 


Working with specialist departments in the BBC and Independent Producers , The Open University commissions documentaries for a range of BBC channels to appeal to the widest possible audience at peak times. We cover technology, lifestyle, history, the arts, science and education and these award winning programmes are sold worldwide to both commercial and public service TV stations. These stations know that quality programming sets them apart from their competitors and brings their schedules to life.
