The BBC has launched an experimental new online service called BBC Taster.

It offers interactive features for digital content across TV, radio and online.

There's also a host of exclusive content, including a 40-minute interview between Lena Dunham of 'Girls' fame and Jennifer Saunders. Plus shows from author and presenter Simon Reeves, hip-hop duo Run the Jewels, and some major BBC brands like 'Doctor Who'.

"Innovation has been at the heart of the BBC since the birth of radio and TV, right through to the digital age – having pioneered products and services like the BBC Micro, Ceefax, BBC iPlayer and the first truly digital Olympics in 2012," Ralph Rivera, director of BBC Future Media, said in a statement.

"BBC Taster is the next step, bringing together our editorial and technology experts and opening the process up for audiences. This will give us valuable feedback and technical insights, helping us further develop our ideas and work on those with the greatest potential."

The Beeb describes Taster as a place for it "to try new ways of telling stories, develop new talent, and put new technology through its paces".

Director of BBC TV Danny Cohen added: "BBC Taster will help ensure we stay at the forefront and better serve audiences now and in the future. It's an exciting opportunity for our world-class production teams to take more creative risks online, try their ideas out and put them in the hands of audiences."
