Where can I find co-productions?
Most of our recent co-productions can be found on BBC iPlayer or BBC Sounds and we try to provide links to more information on our co-production programme pages on this website.
Not all of our co-productions are accessible, but are often available on or added to the BBC’s on-demand digital services for a limited time.
Please note that access to most audio-visual programming on the BBC’s digital services is subject to users being located in the UK and having an active TV licence.
Are all co-productions made with the BBC?
The Open University has worked with a range of broadcasters including Channel 4, Sky Arts.
In addition to this, we work with distribution partners to make some of our co-production content available in other territories.
LEARNING WITH THE OPEN UNIVERSITY
