The BBC is a public service organisation. Our five public purposes are central to us serving the public and help us achieve our core mission to inform, educate and entertain.

The BBC's five public purposes are set out by the Royal Charter and Agreement, the constitutional basis for the BBC as presented to Parliament.

These purposes outline the values the BBC holds when striving to achieve its mission to inform, educate and entertain.

To provide impartial news and information to help people understand and engage with the world around them

The BBC will provide accurate and impartial news, current affairs and factual programming of the highest editorial standards so that all audiences can engage fully with issues across the UK and the world.

To support learning for people of all ages

Educational content will help support learning for children and teenagers across the UK, whilst audiences will be encouraged to explore inspiring and challenging new subjects and activities through a range of partnerships.

To show the most creative, highest quality and distinctive output and services

Innovative content covering many different genres will be provided across a range of services and platforms, setting the standard both in the UK and globally.

To reflect, represent and serve the diverse communities of all of the United Kingdom’s nations and regions and, in doing so, support the creative economy across the United Kingdom

The lives of the people in the United Kingdom today will be accurately and authentically portrayed in the BBC’s output and services to raise awareness of different cultures, contribute to social cohesion and invest in the development of each nation’s creative economy.

To reflect the United Kingdom, its culture and values to the world

High quality, accurate, impartial news coverage will be delivered to international audiences, aiding understanding of the UK as a whole.

Sorry....all I read was lies, half truths and cultural Marxism.

Self righteous middle class mostly lefty jerks who think they can tell you what and how to think.

Propaganda on welfare.

The BBC is in retreat globally.

If you want to see what is going on in the world RT is a much better choice.

I've been watching important world items today whereas I would only see nature and travel and sanitised tory trivia codswallop on the beeb.

What other country than Russia would have the president face an audience for 6 hours on TV, and he did answer, questions no British PM would even consider.

The most you would get out of May would be 3 minutes obfuscation.

Not that she, or us, have anything to say anymore it seems to me.

I hear S4c is very popular in Patagonia.

You could maybe view it as an investment for the future. Apparently 1/2m people speak Welsh in Wales, leaving aside Canada and Patagonia

Many Welsh schools now teach primarily in Welsh. This could be the beginning of a takeover. Our culture being usurped by an alternative culture that is sneaking in under the radar...

Those in Patagonia, as with the majority of World Service users, aren't contributing to any of the costs though. Making it off the scale for costs.

In the last census only 46% of those who said they could speak were fluent, so my 300,000 is generous compared to 46% of your 500,000.

And the language is in decline.

 


Optimistic as ever

Do you want to kill the beeb and give our money to Amazon who pay virtually no Corporation tax in the UK?

At least it's taxpayer money staying in this country and a big employer

and it's not surprising how these debates quickly turn into one where we question whether certain people or sections of society are not deserving and we should cut back. It's sad so many have swallowed this pill (usually churned out by the right wing media), because obviously they want less state control and the money going into the hands of corporates (which they probably have shares in)

Despite their left leaning bias I’d miss their drama, documentaries and health programmes, so higher quality scripts and acting and anything factual but treated with suspicion if political.

Imagine if the channels became like ITV or Channel 5, or what you hear a lot. They provide what people want. I don’t want to watch what chavs, the ignorant and intellectually challenged I hear in the shops watch. Keep the BBC. A world of people on tv scripted or unable to speak properly must not happen. That would take eastenders off air too.

it is so massive i will say it all again :

The BBC coverage of Brexit versus the Man on the Street.


it reminds me of the visit of Pope Francis to Ireland. The fool with the microphone is shouting his head off, but nobody is listening anymore.

Pleading poverty again. In a true free market this corporation would wither & die. Funny how Amazon, HBO, & Netflix Etc all manage to pay high salaries & turn a profit. Time to scrap the licence fee in my opinion & leave the BBC to market forces. Not interested in people telling me the Licence works out at 23p a day or whatever. They seriously need to get their act together.

Isn't every retail outlet of whatever persuasion pleading poverty at present? THERE'S DECLINING SUPPLIES OF INCOME OUT THERE...unless you belong to The Establishment who seem to look after themselves.

lefties ain't monarchists, David Dimbleby a Russian agent, oh please! I hate those c***s on Breakfast News, and those robot newsmen, James Landau & co, bit of Rick Stein, Vic Reeves and Count Arthur Strong get a look in once in a few years to make it almost worthwhile, HIGNFY has lost it, bit of BBC4 for art , history and science , but BBC2 is nothing these days, used to love Modern Times, Arena, Everyman, Adam Curtis, Jonathan Meades and Simon Schama (history not art) - let the BBC die I say - propagandist peddlar of s***e.

... and those f***ing period dramas, there's your bourgeois bollocks Stirling, and Doctor Who's comeback, those two t***s who did bake off sum up the smarmy bulls*** which exemplifies the bbc - and don't confuse objectivity with cowering conformity, their science coverage is crap too, Brian Cox is a narrow minded t***, the bbc seems liberal but it is not, it's part of the establishment's efforts to keep a lid on the population, it upholds nothing, you'd be better off looking for the news yourself rather than let John Humphries serve up what looks like criticism but is actually coverage which implicitly gives credence to politicians generally.

The BBC is bloated and inefficient like all organisations that's fed tax payer money. The licence fee could easily be reduced by cutting back waste. Private companies could also take over some of the radio stations, for example.

They'd just clone that Durham t*** from TalkSh!te and expect punters with no brains to phone in and rant at them.

Quite often I drive from home to the supermarket ten minutes or so away and don't hear anything but adverts the whole way.

One of these days I'll work out how to tune it away from TalkSh!te.

Mock the week has gone downhill. Most of the new comedians are rubbish.
