And for those who prefer Michael Ball - I've recently read (via the BBC Commissioning website) that Michael Ball will be back with a new Sunday evening show starting on 13. January...

I think the 'Invitation to Tender' document (for the independent production companies) may have been taken down now that the commissioning process is over, but I'm looking forward to hearing Michael Ball back on R2.

I was interested to note that it looked as though, at the time the Invitation to Tender document was written, the BBC was unsure as to whether to run the new show as a 90 minute show, or a 120 minute show.

But either way, it looks as though Sunday after 7 may be Michael Ball starting earlier in the new year - but there's been no official announcement by the BBC yet.

I wasn't a fan of MB in the Sunday morning magazine slot but he seems a lot more suited to Sunday evenings, assuming he's in Titch's old slot

I don't think it will be as soon as January as there are still several episodes of American Pie still to run, unless it's only going to be 30 minutes to fill in the 8 - 8.30pm slot.

I'll welcome a proper music programme to fill the Melodies For You slot that is still very much missed.

Seems that the website was just down this morning...the invitation to tender document is still there.

Quote:
BBC Radio 2 is looking to commission a production team and producer with a proven track record in national radio for creating innovative radio programming around a melodic heritage music themed format.

The programme will be a Sunday evening programme presented by Michael Ball which will be a warm, nostalgic format for the older listener with the potential for broader appeal right across the networks demographic.

This business represents part of the WoCC (Window of Creative Competition) and is therefore open both to Independent and Internal suppliers.

It is intended that the production will start on air on the 13th January 2013.

THE TIMETABLE

Tender Round opens: November 15th 2012
Tender Round closes: November 29th 2012 @ noon
Shortlist decision announced: November 30th 2012
Shortlisted Pitches heard: December 7th 2012
Decision announced: December 10th 2012
1st On-Air date: January 13th 2013

The relevant programme proposal(s) must be submitted via the PROTEUS system only and it should cover all the points outlined in the brief on the downloads section of this page (to the right hand side).

For all queries about this, please contact the Radio 2 commissioning team.
