BBC 3 is facing the axe after the corporation desperately searches for an extra £100m a year to cut from their budget.
It’s a toss-up between the future of BBC3 and BBC4 after “salami slicing” (small reductions across the whole company) method was rejected by Director General Tony Hall.
Stars have lept to Twitter in an attempt to save the channel including comedians Jack Whitehall and Matt Lucas, Radio 1 DJs Nick Grimshaw and Greg James and presenter Richard Bacon.
Lucas, whose comedy sketch show Little Britain made its TV debut on the channel, said the closing it would be "really bad for new comedy. Like, really bad. Little Britain, Gavin & Stacey, Torchwood, Being Human, Mighty Boosh, Pramface, Ideal – BBC3 is the home of new comedy and drama."
Similar, audience interactive, techniques were used successfully when BBC Radio 6 Music was saved in 2010.
A definite decision hasn’t been made yet, so there could still be time to save the BBC’s answer to young adult television.
