Charities Other

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am aware of the BBC in Need Charity, however i have noticed that there are 2 other charities linked to the BBC, these being:-

1076235 BBC MEDIA ACTION Registered £40,809,000

1121665 BBC MEDIA ACTION (INDIA) LIMITED Registered £1,763,338

Would you be so kind and to inform me, how these charities receive their main source of income.

Has there been any time, where License fee revenue has been set aside for these charities.

In relation to BBC MEDIA ACTION (India), has the BBC at any time contributed to the the Indian space Agency, known as the Indian Space Research Organization, which has a annual budget of some 2 billion Dollars.

Yours faithfully,

Geoff Rooks
