How to submit scripts to the BBC
The BBC have a wonderful site called the Writersroom where they accept unsolicited scripts. I believe the BBC are the only television company who offer this service. It is extremely easy to acces the Writersroom website even if you are an inexperienced internet user. Once you have logged on to your internet providers home page ie Yahoo, Chrome etc., type BBC and/or Writersroom into your search window and either move the cursor to the 'OK' button and click or press 'enter' on your keyboard. A list of options will appear, simply click on one and the site will open for you. When you have gained acces to the Writersroom home page you will quickly learn how to navigate your way around and discover the many tools,tips and opportunities that await.

The Writersroom houses a library of scripts and script extracts for you to browse, invaluable to the aspiring writer. You can access recent interviews of new and established writers offering the wealth of their experience.
