Charlotte Moore

Director, BBC Content
On 6th July 2016, a new senior leadership team was announced and Charlotte Moore became Director, BBC Content. She also remains Controller of BBC One. She is responsible for the creative vision across the portfolio of channels, BBC iPlayer and genres. She also takes on oversight of BBC Sport.
Previously, Charlotte Moore was Controller of TV Channels and iPlayer, appointed in January 2016, where she was the creative, editorial and strategic lead for BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four and BBC iPlayer, ensuring the channels work in a complementary way while enhancing their distinctive positioning. The re-organisation provides a simplified and more co-ordinated strategy across BBC Television's channel portfolio and supports new, creative approaches to programming and scheduling that reflects changing audience behaviour and the growing role of iPlayer. Charlotte continues to lead BBC One and, within the new structure, manages the heads of iPlayer, Daytime and BBC Four, as well as the new role of channel editor, BBC Two.
Previously, Charlotte was Controller of BBC One since June 2013. Under her leadership, BBC One has enhanced its position as the nation’s most popular TV channel.
Last year was BBC One’s most successful in nearly a decade, with 42 million people tuning in every week. BBC One was the 2015 Channel of the Year and won the most awards at the 2016 BAFTAs. BBC One provides a range of distinctive, high-quality programmes that feel relevant and reflect the diversity of modern Britain. It unites us as a nation around the big, shared moments – political, historic, sporting and cultural. Last year’s Great British Bake Off final was watched live by a peak of more than 14 million people. It’s the place for the nation to come together and to find programmes that are timely and relevant, and speak to a wide audience - the channel that tackles big, universal subjects, and stories that people care about and become part of our everyday conversation. Charlotte’s ambition is to innovate within the mainstream by creating hits for the future, whilst ensuring much-loved long-running shows feel fresh and in touch with the audience. Over the last year, BBC One has taken risks and pushed boundaries with new shows like Doctor Foster, The Night Manager, Peter Kay’s Car Share, David Attenborough’s Giant Dinosaur, Behind Closed Doors and Abused : The Untold Story. She’s also successfully launched new factual strands, whilst ensuring its returning shows are at the top of their game.
Charlotte spent the early part of 2013 as Acting Controller of BBC Daytime Television. Prior to that Charlotte was the BBC’s Commissioning Editor of Documentaries since 2009 where she was responsible for strategy and commissioning for in-house and independents across all four channels. Charlotte transformed the genre to produce a huge breadth of original programming, seeking out the best talent to bring the most compelling and inspiring documentary content to a broad audience. From Bafta-winning titles Protecting Our Children, 7/7 One Day In London, Between Life and Death, The Great British Bake Off, Terry Pratchett’s Choosing To Die, The Choir and Welcome To Lagos to hit series like Inside Claridges, The Call Centre, Lambing Live and The Tube.
She joined the BBC in 2006 as Commissioning Executive for Documentaries. Prior to joining the BBC, Charlotte was Director of Contemporary Factual at IWC Media focusing on high-profile contemporary narrative documentaries and series for all the major UK channels, including BBC Two’s landmark series Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive.
