A public corporation and a media organisation, also called BBC

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is a public broadcaster in the UK and one of the largest broadcasting organisation in the world.[1] The BBC is funded by the TV licence fee that is paid by UK households and business who have televisions.[1] The BBC is independent from direct government intervention, its activities being overseen by the BBC Trust.[2] The BBC provides eight national TV channels (BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, BBC Four, CBBC, CBeebies, BBC News, BBC Parliament) as well as radio broadcasting, BBC Online and BBC iPlayer.[3]

‘TV Licensing’ is a trade mark of the BBC and is used under licence by companies paid to administer the collection of TV licence fees and enforcement of TV licensing on behalf of the BBC.[4]
