The BBC is a public service. The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) gets most of its funding from the licence fee which every house hold that owns a TV in Britain has to pay; the conditions that the BBC have to follow are that it has to do at least one of these entertain, educate and/or inform these are laid down by the government. If the BBC doesn’t follow these it will not be allowed to broadcast and use the TV licence to fend its self.
The BBC has gone from having a still indent of the UK (1962). To a mixed race in wheel chairs playing basket ball. Showing that anyone can do something and also that London is a multi cultural city. They have moved away from the globe idea and replaced it with a mixed race of people.
They have still decided to keep the circle of the globe and they incorporate it into the ident.The BBC has to cater for all sectors of the community. To enable them to have popular shows they need to have a show that will appeal to each and every audience. That has to entertain, educate and/or inform if the show doesn’t include one of these the show can’t and will not be broadcast.A white paper is a government policy proposal. In March 2006 Culture Secretary Tessa Jowel published a white paper on the further of the licence fee and the functions, roles and structure of the BBC. The white paper confirmed that the licence fee will remain until 2016.
In 2016 the BBC will have to find some other way to not move into dept. That is if the BBC is still running/broadcasting.The BBC have other ways on getting money but not by advertising like all other broadcasters. The BBC have footage from all over the world and even if it makes something look bad they will broadcast it anyway this allows them to be unbiest when broadcasting the news. They have cable and digital channels like BBC 3 ; 4 but also have BBC 1 which has most of the BBC’s viewers. They also have CBBC and CBeebies for the younger generations. The BBC is a wide speed broadcaster it has radio stations, news and weather, TV shows and much more.
All of these allow the BBC to get money with out having to have any adverts.Today, it has bases or correspondents in more than 200 countries and, as officially surveyed, is available to more than 274 million households, though also possibly far more individual persons and groups than surveys can gather, and it is the oldest surviving entity of its kind and is more widely known internationally than any other news organization. The BBC’s reach is significantly more than CNN’s estimated 200 million.Older domestic UK audiences often refer to the BBC as “the Beeb”, a nickname originally dubbed by Peter Sellers in The Goon Show in the 1950s, when he referred to the “Beeb Beeb Ceeb”.
It was then borrowed, shortened and popularised by Kenny Everett. Another nickname, now less commonly used, is “Auntie”, said to originate from the old-fashioned “Auntie knows best” attitude, (but possibly a sly reference to the ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ who were presenters of children’s programmes in early days) in the days when John Reith, the BBC’s founder, was in charge. The two nicknames have also been used together as “Auntie Beeb”, and Auntie has been used in outtakes programmes such as Auntie’s Bloomers.
