  1. History.
    The BBC was the world's first national broadcasting organisation and was founded on 18th October 1922 as the British Broadcasting Company Ltd. The original was founded in 1922 by a group of six telecommunications companies-Marconi, Radio Coummincation Company, Metropolitan-Vickers, Genreal Electric and then British Thomson-Houston to broadcast experimental radio services. The first transmission was on 14th November of that year, from station 2LO, located at Marconi House London.

  2. BBC.
    The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is the principal public service broadcaster in the United Kingdom. It is the largest broadcaster in the world with about 23,000 staff. It's global headquarters
    is located in London, and it's main responsibility is to provide public service broadcasting in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. The BBC is an autonomous public service broadcaster that Operates under a Royal Charter. Within the United Kingdom it's work is funded principally by an annual television licence fee, which is charged to all United Kingdom households, companies and organisations using any type of equipment to record and/or receive live television broadcasts; the level of the fee is set annually by the British Government and agreed by Parliament.

    Outside the UK, the BBC World Service has provided services by direct broadcasting and re-transmission contracts by sound radio since the inuauguration of the BBC Empire Service in December 1932 and more recently by television and online. Though sharing some of the facilities of the domestic services, particularly for news and current affairs output, the World Sevice has a seprate Managing Director and it's operating costs have historically been funded mainly by direct grants from the UK government. These grants were determined independently of the domestic licence fee. A
    recent spending review has announced plans for the funding for the world service to be drawn from the domestic licence fee.

    The Corporation's 'guaranteed' income from the licence fee and the World Service grants are supplemented by profits from commercial operations through a wholly owned subsidiary, BBC Worldwide Ltd. The company's activities include programmes and format-sales, magazines including Radio Times and book publishing. The BBC also earns additional income from selling certain programme-making services through BBC Studios and Post Production Ltd., formerly BBC Resources Ltd, another wholly owned trading subsidiary of the corporation.

  15. Whoever you are and from any part of the world: We must always keep ourselves safe and well away from all forms of religion. Where many men have been sorely misguided and misled over all these past centuries and have therefore been drawn into many unnecessary wars and battles; all in the name of Christianity and also in the name of any and all other such religions!
    We must all therefore learn to think in the way that our true Father wants us to: That is, each of us as individuals and thus well away from all religions! – For the true Spirit of God our one true Father in heaven; doesn’t come to us through any of the self-indulgent and self-righteous leaders and teachers of Christianity; neither through the many TV Evangelists or through any other such mass places of worship, with all their many added false prayers: He never has done! – He comes to us always through only Immanuel alone, the anointed one and of whom we call Jesus: That for the sake of all humanity, and through his death, man may live…

    “You have learned that they were told, ‘Love your neighbour, and hate your enemy.’ But what I tell you is this: Love your enemies and pray for your persecutors.” – (Matthew. 5: 43-44) –

    “When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.
    In your prayers do not go babbling on as people do, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
    Do not imitate them. Your Father already knows what your needs are before you ask him.
    This is how you should pray:
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
    Give us today our daily bread,
    And Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
    For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever.
    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it. Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 12-16) –
    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe.” – (John 10: 9) –

    “The disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

    “Where two or three gather in my name, I am there among them.” Then Peter came up and asked him, ‘Lord, how often am I to forgive my brother if he goes on wronging me? As many as seven times?’ he replied ‘I do not say seven times; I say seventy times seven.’” – (Matthew 18: 20-22) –

    “An expert in the law, [the leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’”
    – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –

    “One of the criminals who hung there also mocked and taunted him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us!’ But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He answered, “I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.’” – (Luke 23: 39-43) –

  16. Thanks for posting. I worked for STAR TV in Hong Kong which put BBC WSTV to Asia. It was an exciting time in television, watching the channel grow and be seen in countries that previously only had World Service radio.

  17. Alex from Ho Chi Minh city of Vietnam here, that when I was a kid I watch BBC World News That in fact I was like it but this year is 25th anniversary Of BBC world news I wish BBC world news Will Be #1 World News Of the World #WorldNews #BBC #25YearsOfStories

  18. Back when the BBC was doing real news and substantially much less of the nonsense tabloid rubbish today. The reporting style was better back then too. No silly irrelevant cartoons, no deafening techno music, just a reporter narrating, video footage, and graphics that actually aided in understanding and not to entertain. The YouTube channel is a great microcosm of today's BBC. Plenty of nonsense with a few great pieces of real news and journalism interspersed. Compare this channel with Al Jazeera, where you actually get real news. How far it has fallen from its glory days. Auntie used to be respectable but now it's becoming a joke so appeal to 'younger' people. I'm sure young people aren't impressed. They don't want to be treated as dumb. And they eventually grow up. Change might be necessary but what the BBC has done recently is the wrong type of change.

  19. 25+ years ago, the BBC was much better than it is today. It assumed the audience had a brain. These days BBC is very dumbed down and treats its audience like children.
