About BBC

The BBC, or the British Broadcasting Corporation Ltd, is a public service broadcaster based in the UK. The company’s headquarters are at Broadcasting House in London, where a number of popular shows are recorded and broadcast, such as BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra. The company’s aim is to “inform, educate and entertain”, a mission which it has held since the 20s.

The company was founded almost a century ago in 1922 by John Reith. The country’s first live public broadcast by radio happened in 1920, it was met with enthusiasm by the public but officials banned anymore public broadcasts in an effort to avoid interference with military broadcasts.

By 1922, there had been sufficient pressure from wireless societies to revoke the ban. The General Post Office lifted the broadcasting ban and awarded a single broadcasting licence to the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Originally, the it solely provided radio broadcasts, but today, the company also produces entertainment on television and online. It is mainly funded by Britain’s nationwide television licence fee, paid by UK residents who watch or record any form of live television.

Though, much of the company’s revenue is apparently made from BBC Worldwide Ltd, a commercial subsidiary of the BBC, which sells content internationally. It is often referred to as the oldest and largest broadcaster in the world, with over 35,000 staff members, including part-time and flexible staff.
