Detailed Description

The BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world. Its purpose is to enrich people's lives with programmes that inform, educate and entertain. It is a public service broadcaster, established by a Royal Charter and funded by the licence fee that is paid by UK households.

The BBC has a commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, which operates a range of businesses including selling advertising across BBC websites to viewers outside the UK. Its profits are returned to the BBC for investment in new programming and services.

The website, bbc.co.uk, has an annual budget of £153m. The Graf Report into the BBC's online activities in 2005 laid out a 25% external-spend quota.
