Since its inception in 1927, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has been a revered name in public service broadcasting. The BBC's role was to 'educate, inform and entertain' its audience free from political as well as commercial interference. The BBC was incorporated under a Royal Charter, which was renewed every ten years. The BBC's eighth Charter would end on December 31 st 2006. In 2005, the government published the Green Paper as part of the BBC's Charter Review process. In the Green Paper, it suggested sweeping changes to the way BBC was managed.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To understand the Royal Charter governing the function of BBC and provides insight into the Green Paper released by the British Government for reviewing the Royal Charter
  • To discuss whether the review would bring about a radical overhaul in the way the BBC functions.
