Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am currently researching about "Design Principle" or
"Design Philosophy" in public service.

In concern, about "Global Experience Language (GEL)"
of BBC ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/gel ), I am interested
in following information:

1/ Process of Building "GEL Design Philosophy"
- Was the Building this "Philosophy" a project of special team
like a "Future of News Project"?
( http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-30999914 )
- If so, how was the team project process by compare with
"Future of News Project"?
( How many people, structure of the team, how was the schedule? )

2/ Why "GEL" is open to the public?
- It seems a philosophy and regulations of inside BBC.
Is it a special reason for open to the public in web?

3/ "GEL" in inside BBC
- I am intereseted in using way by non-expert of design.
Especially about "Design Philosophy."
Is it informed to all staff of BBC or for specified using?

It would be nice, if you have a report about it to inform me,
but if not, I greatly appreciate your kindness for answering
these questions.

Thank you very much in advance,

Yours faithfully,

Shuichi Fukazawa
