The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is a channel that is available on many cable systems around the world. The BBC has been given the backronym (back acronym) of "British Bullshit Corporation" since at least 1996 by those who believe that the BBC broadcasts propaganda. Other BBC nicknames include "British Brainwashing Corporation," "Big Brother Corporation" and "Buggering British Children." "Canadian Bullshit Corporation" (for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, or CBC) is a similar nickname. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is a British public service broadcasting statutory corporation. Its main responsibility is to provide impartial public service broadcasting in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.
The BBC is headquartered at Broadcasting House in London and has major production centres in Salford Quays, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow, and smaller production centres throughout the UK. The BBC 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 a public service broadcaster that operates under a Royal Charter and a Licence and Agreement from the Home Secretary. Last Sunday the Third Battle of Newbury received a phone call from BBC South Today. Nothing unusual about that. Friends of the Earth were asked about the Art Bypass festival, and whether they expected any trouble. When the reply of ‘no’ was forthcoming, the BBC ‘journalist’ said that they would not cover the event unless there was some violence. The British Bullshit Corporation then reported this on their bulletin that those who attended the Brighton RTS were not welcome at Art Bypass. 9 the british newsbitch sits in front of his telly watching the British Bullshit Co spread its manure while he clutches his pint in one hand and the Independent newspaper in the other.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, more commonly known as the Foreign Office or the FCO, is the British government department responsible for promoting the interests of the United Kingdom abroad. On 18 October 2007, BBC Director General Mark Thompson announced a controversial plan to make major cuts and reduce the size of BBC as an organisation. The plans included a reduction in posts of 2,500; including 1,800 redundancies, consolidating news operations, reducing programming output by 10% and selling off the flagship Television Centre building in London. These plans have been fiercely opposed by unions, who have threatened a series of strikes; however, BBC have stated that the cuts are essential to move the organisation forward and concentrate on increasing the quality of programming. Numerous BBC facilities have been sold off, including New Broadcasting House on Oxford Road in Manchester. On 16 February 2016, BBC Three was discontinued and replaced by a digital outlet under the same name, targeting its young adult audience with web series and other content. Under the new royal charter instituted 2017, the corporation must publish an annual report to Ofcom, outlining its plans and public service obligations for the next year. In its 2017-18 report, released July 2017, BBC announced plans to "re-invent" its output to better compete against commercial streaming services such as Netflix.

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is famous around the world, as being a provider of news and entertainment on Radio and Television. It has part in creating lost treasures for you to find. This is because of a series of attitudes and situations that existed during a very influential time in the history of the BBC. As with so many things, people don’t realize the value of what they have at the time they have it. Television Broadcasting was in its infancy. One of the by-products of all this was that virtually all film footage was stored. Initially due simply have material that could be re-transmitted or distributed to other countries for sale or rent.
Remember this is a time before Video Recorders and DVD’s, and so if a viewer ‘missed’ their program, they just had to wait for it to be rebroadcasted at a later date. No one envisaged the idea of owning their own copies, except those rare few members of public would who had their own film and projection equipment. As such, for around 40 years, every inch of film was sent for storage, which meant a lot of film and a lot of space was required to accomplish this. Due to this, in the early 1970’s, the BBC made an executive decision to review the recordings they had in store.
As the public were demanding new color productions, the interest to rebroadcast ‘black and white’ shows greatly reduced, so little point was seen paying for the expensive storage of production that seemed never to be aired again. So an active assessment of what was being stored was reviewed. Programs were ‘graded’ by their possible historic value, as such an estimate was made about how they may be considered in future generations. Top priority was given to ‘A List’ shows such as important documentaries or news items that were deemed highly influential or significant. Also productions of famous authors such as Dennis Potter or Alan Bleasedale who found new recognition in this new field of televised Drama. At the time, these shows were seen as incidental programs, ‘fads’ of their age.
No one realized how famous they would become and how influential they were to define the age they filmed in and the cultural impact they maintained. Instead, if the footage was too old it was simply thrown away, or if the film was good enough to reuse, the film was ‘wiped’ and a new program was recorded on it. For many enthusiasts this purge on the BBC storage of film footage is the equivalent of the burning of the Library of Alexandra, as so many beloved programs were lost. Fortunately not all fell afoul of this desecration. As such, many of the productions survived, but some of the serials and seasons are completely lost, or important episodes missing. The desire to find the lost episodes, especially of the past 20 years, has created stories that echo the adventures of Indiana Jones, of whispers of lost recordings being found in remote collections in Africa. Rumors abound of vast amounts of money being exchanged for private collections. Yet, equally, possibly more enchanting and the stories of lost film reels being found in sheds and lofts, giving excited delight to those dedicated fans. Although, seeing that people actually hold careers in looking for this modern Holy Grails, these really must be listed as Top Treasures!
Confirmed that the Government could not automatically create new prerogative powers. Here, the claimants, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) sought to submit that they ought be exempt from income tax generally as they should be considered a monopoly resultant from prior Government decisions grounded in royal prerogative. Subsequently, they should be viewed as an emanation of the Crown. Whether the BBC could be viewed as a statutory body and thus exempt from taxation. Furthermore, whether the British Government were authorised to create new monopolies in certain areas. In response to the BBC’s assertion that they ought hold monopoly status in British broadcasting, Diplock LJ notably commented ‘It is 350 years and a civil war too late for the Queen’s courts to broaden the prerogative. Our Marking Service will help you pick out the areas of your work that need improvement. Fully referenced, delivered on time. Get the extra support you require now.
Our ability to write rules far exceeds our ability to live by them. Anyone employed by a business or institution soon discovers that they "work" in what are often two very different tracks. The organization presumably provides services or produces products. Some of an employee’s efforts go into helping assure that these services are delivered more or less as promised. But in a big organization this primary goal may require looking through a maze of flow charts and routing procedures that obscure more basic ‘line’ functions. It’s clear enough what line people do: purchasing, manufacturing, sales and keeping the books.
They are directly responsible for whether a customer is satisfied. But the commitment of staff resources to "supporting" these functions can be a runaway train. It seems as if our abilities to write new procedures far exceeds our abilities to live by them. Staff culture in a larger organization ostensibly augments essential line functions. That’s the idea, at least. In actual fact they may come to swamp the organization’s morale and efficiency, setting rules and standards that seem to exist for their own sake. And because organizations have hierarchies, those in charge carry a formal authority that requires others to adapt and obey.
Read this mostly as the submission of "supporting data and materials," which may take the form of various metrics, progress reports, mission statements, five-year goals, project proposals, staff evaluations, vendor reviews, self-assessments and the like. And so while even a mid-level employee does things to shape the final product or service on offer, he or she will also need to spend a lot of time learning the organizational labyrinth. In really big organizations there are even "compliance officers" who do nothing but police arcane procedures. One set of offices gains power by asking another for paper evidence of their worth.
This kafkaesque thicket is why one of this year’s winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics is still an assistant professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario. Professor Donna Strickland said she just didn’t want to bother with the mountains of paper should would have had to produce in order to win a promotion. Never mind that the University might recognize her talents on its own. In an ideal organization perhaps no more than two hours a week would be devoted to "process" issues: reports, memoranda, applications, meetings and the like that the hierarchy needs to keep itself well fed. Alas, we seem to have developed institutions where final results are hardly noticed by those stuck in middle management distractions and useless cul-de-sacs.
Strictly ancillary administrative functions seem to metastasize into ever larger "support" bureaucracies. Workplace comedies usually include a healthy level of skepticism about procedures and rules that have become important for their own sake. Cut off from meaningful improvements in the organization’s work, more employees spend their days finding new ways to be busy and seemingly vital. The best recent example is the British series W1A (currently available on Netflix), a multi-part mockumentary ostensibly about work life at the B.B.C. Give the great broadcasting organization credit; it opened up its new offices to a group of actors mercilessly engaged in ransacking the company’s organizational life. The series is filled with meaningless meetings that include staffers with meaningless titles.
What does this all mean? Complexity is not a reliable sign of organizational success. Once as Chair of an academic department I tried to answer every request for a report or proposal in one page or less. Other chairs in the school often submitted documents too thick to staple. Mine arrived as a weightless single sheet. Who said Professors of Rhetoric are wordy? I’m sure the Dean thought this was some sort of passive-aggressive gesture, though we were always on good terms. My larger goal was serious: to remove useless verbiage to focus on what our program could deliver to our students.

Empress Valley’s The Complete British Broadcasting Corporation Radio Sessions is the latest in a long line of releases, both official and unofficial, covering Zeppelin’s early radio career. Given their origins with the BBC the sound quality of these tapes has almost always been at least very good if not excellent covering the embryonic Zeppelin. Since the release of the BBC Sessions on Atlantic Records in 1998 there have not been many unofficial releases covering this material and this is the first all inclusive set. The sound quality and presentation of the Empress Valley collection is across the board excellent and a worthy upgrade to all previous issues including the official release with some reservations discussed below.
Empress Valley make the claim they use the pre-FM master recordings except for the March 19th Alexis Korner session, which comes from an "aircheck master" (i.e., it was taped off of a short wave broadcast). This could be true since it does not sound as if they used the official or any other source. Compared to Jimmy Page’s own work on these tapes, Empress Valley sounds much more heavy and lively lending more vitality to these tapes like never before. Since the set runs in chronological order the first disc contains the four earliest and shortest sessions. Disc 1, Radio One Session, John Peel’s Top Gear, Playhouse, London - March 3rd, 1969: You Shook Me, Communication Breakdown, I Can’t Quit You, Dazed and Confused.
World Service Radio Session, Rhythm And Blues, Maida Vale Studio, London - March 19th, 1969: Alexis Korner introduction, What Is And What Should Never Be, more chat, I Can’t Quit You, more chat, You Shook Me, Sunshine Woman. Radio One, Chris Grant’s Tasty Pop Sundae, Aeolian Hall Studio 2, London - June 16th, 1969: The Girl I Love, Communication Breakdown, Something Else, What Is And What Should Never Be, group interview with Chris Grant. 5), and Lost BBC Sessions (LCD-1506) on the Led Note label. The next seven tracks cover the Alexis Korner session which has been wiped from the BBC archives and was not included on the official release.
" (EX-00-020) on Equinox along with other 1969 fragments. The sound is a very good and crisp mono and includes Korner’s introduction and praise of the band while gently strumming his guitar. "What Is And What Should Never Be" from the June 16th session is included in the broadcast although doesn’t originate from this actual session and EV chose to maintain the broadcast order. The June 16th session of Chris Grant’s Tasty Pop Sundae has been very popular since it contains the two rarities "The Girl I Love" and "Something Else". Older releases include Something Else on Archive ("The Girl I Love", "Communication Breakdown", "Something Else", and "What Is And What Should Never Be") and <a href="http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20150525-whats-the-prime-of-your-life">BBC</a>
