  2. 2. WHAT IS RADIO BROADCASTING?  Radio broadcasting includes many technologies that combine to form a technique of one way transmission of audio data. This is used to communicate information by radio for public or widespread use. It’s a form of communication that helps to spread news to many spectators from different locations at the same time.
  3. 3. PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING     BBC Audio & Music is a share of the British Broadcasting Corporation. The service offers national radio stations covers most of the musical genres, as well as local radio stations . The national radio stations, BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Live are all accessible through analogue radio (5 Live on AM only) then on DAB Digital Radio and internet services through Real Media, WMA and BBC IPlayer. The other stations, BBC Radio 1Xtra, 4 Extra, 5 Live Sports Extra and 6 Music, all program on digital platforms only. Majority of the BBC's national radio stations, with the exception of BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra who broadcast from Media City UK in Salford, broadcast from bases in London However, radio programs are also made in the BBC's network production units located in other cities around the UK.

  6. 6. BBC WORLD SERVICE RADIO STATIONS   BBC WORLD SERVICE The BBC World Service is the world's largest international broadcaster, broadcasting news, speech and discussions in 28 languages to many parts of the world on analogue and digital shortwave platforms, internet streaming, pod casting, satellite, FM and MW relays. The World Service was reported to have reached 188 million people a week on average in June 2009.It does not carry advertising, and the English language service broadcasts 24 hours a day.   The World Service is currently funded by grant-in-aid through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the British Government, however from 2014, it will be funded by the compulsory television license fee levied on every household in the United Kingdom using a television to watch broadcast programmes.
  7. 7. BBC REGIONAL RADIO STATIONS           BBC Radio Scotland BBC Radio nan Gàidheal – Scottish Gaelic language BBC Radio Shetland – Scotland (Shetland) BBC Radio Orkney – Scotland (Orkney) BBC Radio Wales BBC Radio Cymru – Welsh language BBC Radio Ulster – Northern Ireland BBC Radio Foyle – Northern Ireland (Londonderry) BBC Local Radio is the BBC's regional radio service for England and the Channel Islands, consisting of 40 stations. They cover a variety of areas with some serving a city and surrounding areas, for example BBC Radio Manchester; a county, for example BBC Radio Norfolk; an administrative region for example BBC WM; or a larger region entirely for example BBC Radio Solent. The stations were launched progressively starting with BBC Radio Leicester on 8 November 1967 with the last station to launch being the ill fated BBC Dorset FM on 26 April 1993. Since then, numerous local radio stations have been merged and renamed, however no new stations have been created where no service previously existed.
  8. 8. ADVANTAGES OF BEING FUNDED BY THE LICENSE FEE          We believe that license fee funding will be a benefit to the World Service, the wider BBC, and the British people. The BBC’s license fee funding is based on multi-year settlements, with the current funding arrangement lasting until 2017. Although the BBC’s income is itself constrained over this period, this level of certainty in funding provides a relatively stable environment in which to make decisions about existing and future services. A combination of a secure funding source, and the clarity of purpose set out in the Operating License, will give the World Service a strong footing to plan its activities for the coming years. We believe that the rest of the BBC also benefits from funding the World Service through the license fee.
  9. 9. WHAT ELSE THE BBC OWNS?  They own sister companies such as BBC films, BBC radio 1extra and so on as well as digital channels BBC 3, BBC 4 which are designed to appeal to a different audience.
  10. 10. WHAT INDUSTRY IS IT LINKED TOO The radio industry is linked to advertising and marketing industry as it uses adverts in some radio stations such as capital FM uses adverts.  Also the radio industry is linked to the interactive media industries as they use their Facebook website or twitter account to gain followers. 
