BBC runs eight TV channels, BBC News 24 and BBC Parliament, 54 Radio stations, BBCi interactive services, including websites, mobile services and interactive television, services in the nations and regions. In addition, the BBC runs the World Service and some TV stations in other countries.

British Broadcasting Company as it was originally called was formed in October 1922, as a commercial entity by a group of wireless manufacturer, including the radio pioneer Marconi. In 1927, it became British Broadcasting Corporation when it was granted its first Royal Charter.

The BBC Royal Charter signed by the Queen set out the rules for what the BBC does and where it gets its money. The rules do not mention specific television or radio programmes BBC has to air, but make sure the BBC creates programmes that appeal to the diverse population of the UK.
