Taster is the BBC's home of new ideas. We feature unique, experimental audience experiences. Some of the Taster experiences may not work on all platforms or devices and some may have glitches. They may not all meet the usual BBC technical and accessibility standards. If something looks broken please let us know by contacting [email protected]
The content on Taster is designed for people 16 and over and may not be suitable for people under 16.
We encourage audience feedback. You are able to give feedback during the trial period using the 'Rate' feature or by contacting us at [email protected] The 'Rate' and 'Share' features help the BBC create new ideas of interest to our audiences.
Taster does not necessarily represent the BBC's future plans. Some ideas may only be available during the trial period and the BBC may choose to commission alternative ideas and content. We may remove ideas during the trial period, either permanently or temporarily. There may also be other restrictions: for example most ideas are accessible globally but some experiences may have access restrictions based on your location.
Many of the Taster ideas are built as part of the BBC Connected Studio innovation programme. Some Taster experiences and content may be owned by the BBC's partners and their use may be subject to additional restrictions.
