The BBC is the largest broadcasting organisation in the world. Its mission 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 uses the income from the licence fee to provide services including 8 national TV channels plus regional programming, 10 national radio stations, 40 local radio stations and an extensive website.
BBC World Service broadcasts to the world on radio, on TV and online, providing news and information in 32 languages. It is funded by a government grant, not from the licence fee.
The BBC also has a commercial arm, BBC Worldwide. Its profits are returned to the BBC for investment in new programming and services.
