The BBC

Posted by CRISTINA CABAL DIAZ under General, Resources
But , of course, you cannot be in London and not to go to the BBC. And so I went and had a great time. I even saw a quiz being recorded although to tell you the truth I don’t have a clue about the name of this quiz. I also volunteered to do the weather forecast as the pic shows and I became the newsreader for 
a while(I’ll show you the photo some other time) . Nice experience , by the way!!
The BBC is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world and you have to pay if you want to see its programmes. The annual cost of a colour TV licence (set by the Government) is currently £139.50 and with that you get  good programmes without commercials.
The BBC uses the income from the licence fee to provide services including 8 national TV channels plus regional programming, 10 national radio stations, 40 local radio stations and an extensive website, bbc.co.uk which I highly recommend
