Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Is sports broadcasting (in particular, event broadcasting and supplementary commentary) considered as "journalism, art or literature" by the BBC? If so, can you please publish the guidelines you use in order to define sports broadcasting as such, and whether sports broadcasting is indeed journalism, art or literature per BBC guidelines?

Yours faithfully,
Owain
