British Broadcasting Corporation
The British Broadcasting Corporation is a UK-based international public service broadcaster headquartered at Broadcasting House in London. It is the world's oldest national broadcasting organisation and the largest broadcaster in the world by number of employees, with about 23,000 staff. The BBC is established under a Royal Charter and operates under its Agreement with the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. Its work is funded principally by an annual television licence fee which is charged to all British households, companies and organisations using any type of equipment to receive live television broadcasts. The level of the fee is set by the British Government, agreed by Parliament and used to fund the BBC's extensive Radio, TV and Online services covering the nations and regions of the UK. From 1 April 2014 it also funds the BBC World Service, which provides comprehensive TV, Radio and Online services in Arabic, and Persian and broadcasts in 28 languages overall.
