Deverell calls for gritty school dramas

From Katherine Rushton for Broadcast:
BBC children's controller Richard Deverell has claimed the corporation should make room for gritty school dramas - less than six months after Grange Hill was dropped after being relaunched for a younger audience.

Deverell said CBBC, which caters to children aged six to 12, was not the right place for a programme which deals with older teenage issues such as A levels, but said there was a need for dramas that reflect children's real lives.

...The BBC Trust is to launch a review of its content for audiences aged 13 to 36 in September
