Stacey Dooley, the channel’s somewhat wide-eyed investigative reporter, is lined up to make Sex in the Strangest Places, in which she will be exploring prostitution in Brazil, Russia and Turkey.One comedian, Eddie Izzard, will play a major role in BBC3’s transition, as he is filmed running 27 marathons in consecutive days in South Africa to recognise Nelson Mandela’s 27 years of incarceration.Mr Kavanagh’s confidence is based on BBC3 being part of a vast web of services with which young people already engage.The behemoth BBC1 – on which some of BBC3’s longer shows will run – is the most popular channel with 16- to 34-year-olds and is itself proof that plenty of millennials still watch old-fashioned TV.
