BBC ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR EDINBURGH FESTIVALS 2022

The BBC has announced its plans to mark the Edinburgh Festivals this year across TV, iPlayer, radio and BBC Sounds.



The Fringe, Fame And Me

1 x 90 for BBC Scotland, BBC Two and BBC iPlayer

The Fringe, Fame And Me is the story of how a small Scottish arts festival that began 75 years ago this year became a national institution - a crucible where new stars are forged, careers made, and sometimes, dreams dashed.



Told by the stars who first found fame at the Edinburgh Fringe, this is the inside story of what it takes to make a name here, from those who enjoyed overnight success to those who slogged for years to make it.


Through their triumphs, favourite jokes, and sometimes painful failures, we’ll discover a hidden history of British comedy - revealing how the gags we find funny and the comedians we love reflect our changing culture.



The Fringe, Fame And Me will broadcast on BBC Scotland, BBC Two and BBC iPlayer in August.


Edinburgh Military Tattoo

BBC One

This year's Edinburgh Military Tattoo returns for its 72nd year and its first with a live audience since the pandemic.



Broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer this August, this year's spectacle, entitled Voices, will be a celebration of expression, giving a stage to performers and acts to share their voice.


The show draws inspiration from people across the globe who, despite physical separation, continue to connect and share their voices creatively through spoken word, song, music, and dance - languages common to all.
