BBC Launches Make It Digital Programme

The BBC has unveiled its 2015 education project, dubbed Make It Digital, to encourage people to learn coding, programming and digital technology.

Project controller, Jessica Cecil said the programme will be the BBC's major education project for next year, and will consist of new commissions including dramas and documentaries as well as online resources. She added that partnerships will be the key to the programme's approach.

Tony Hall, BBC director-general said: "I want the BBC to bring its creativity and energy to projects like this and make the digital world come alive for all audiences. We want to inspire a new generation to get creative with coding, programming and digital technology. It's exactly what the BBC should be doing.

"There will be something for everyone and we will work closely with the industry to help capture the spirit of what we did with the BBC Micro in the 1980s, but this time for the digital age."
