BBC Switch's online magazine programme The 5.19 Show is to transfer to BBC2 and become the host strand for other Switch TV content.

The in-house show, presented by stand-up comedian Tom Deacon, currently streams live every weekday on It will continue to run online but it will also replace the interstitials in Switch's 12pm to 2pm Saturday slot on BBC2, previously made by Remedy Productions.

Geoffrey Goodwin, head of BBC Switch, said The 5.19 Show would be “the glue” for all Switch TV content and is likely to expand. “I could see [a T4-style zone] as one of the eventualities.”

The 5.19 Show will anchor Switch television from January, as part of a new slate including the 6 x 30-minute The Teenager's Guide to Life (working title) by Twenty-Twenty Television.

The Teenager's Guide To Life is pitched as a “one-stop guide to everything teenagers want to know but don't know how to ask”. Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates will present the show with 20-year-old student AJ Odudu. “It will be fast and funny and address a wide range of questions, such as how to put on a condom, how to dance better or how to succeed in school,” said Goodwin.

Goodwin ordered the series with BBC Knowledge commissioner Harry Lansdown. It will be executive produced for TwentyTwenty by Sam Whittaker.

The new Switch slate also includes the previously announced Myths (BBC Switch and RSA Films) and SuperAgents (Zig Zag).
