The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is primarily a national publicly-funded broadcaster based in the United Kingdom, which also has some international services. Some of the international services (such as BBC cable TV in the United States, Canada and elsewhere) are commercially funded, making the BBC also a multinational corporation.

It is frequently heralded as the most widely respected broadcaster in the world. Sometimes affectionately known to local consumers as "the Beeb", "the Corporation", or "Auntie" the BBC was for many years the only radio and then televisual provider in the United Kingdom. Its motto is "Nation Shall Speak Peace Unto Nation".

Before the introduction of Independent Television in 1955 and subsequently Independent Radio in 1973, it held a monopoly on broadcasting. More recent de-regulation of the British television broadcasting market produced analogue cable television and satellite broadcasting and later digital satellite, digital cable and digital terrestrial television (DTT).

Today the BBC broadcasts in almost all media and operates an award winning internet service,, itself indicative of the corporation's continued ability to move with the times.
