Revenue generated from share of UKTV

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

How much revenue do the BBC make from advertising on the BBC World Service in countries like the UAE?

What is the revenue generated from selling programmes such as Top Gear to UKTV to be shown on Dave.

How much revenue do the BBC generate from the commercials shown on UKTV channels?

How is it legal for the BBC to sell Top Gear and other programmes (Only Fools and Horses as an example) to UKTV to then make a profit from the commercials shown on these channels?

Is it a fact that the BBC is not in whole funded by the TV License?
