From Wikipedia: The channel's annual budget for 2011/12 is 1,166.6 million.3 Along with the BBC's other domestic television stations, and many European broadcasters and some in Asia, it is funded principally by the television licence fee, and therefore shows uninterrupted programming with no commercial advertising at any time. It is currently the most watched television channel in the United Kingdom, ahead of its traditional rival for ratings leadership, ITV1. This system used a vertically-scanned image of 30 lines just enough resolution for a close-up of one person, and with a bandwidth low enough to use existing radio transmitters. - en.wikipedia.org read more about BBC One on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

How is the free channel paid for?The £1,402m BBC One budget is funded by the £3,596m Television Licence Fee, and represents 39% of all BBC spending - that's about £1.11 per week per person.
Is the channel live, pre-recorded, new content or repeats?BBC One has live presentation, and both national and regional are broadcast live. In addition the daily The One Show (7pm) is live, as are sporting events. All other programmes are pre-recorded and are almost always commissioned by the BBC and having their first showing.
What's the channel's unique selling point?The channel is customized for viewers in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as to a lesser extent in the English regions, and has the most extensive television regional news service in the UK.
The programme schedule highlightsWeekdays has national news from 6am-9am, 1pm, 6pm and 10pm and regional news at 1:30pm and 6:30pm. There's a daily soap, Doctors at 1:45pm, and EastEnders (Mon/Fri 8pm, Tue/Thurs 7:30pm) and Holby City (Wed 8pm).
The rest of the schedule is mixed, with factual (Mon 7:30pm, 8:30pm) and entertainment and factual/entertainment mix shows (such as Motorway Cops). Thursday night has politics from 10:35pm onwards, Friday night being entertainment only.
The bits to avoidThe morning schedule of Cash In The Attic, 11:30am and Bargain Hunt, 12:15pm are formalistic.

I live in Harrogate and up to a few months ago I used to be able to get Look North & Calendar North Yorkshire news but now I can only get East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire news. I have re-tuned the smart TV manually and digitally and even taken it back to factory settings uploading my Post Code but still it only gives me the options of East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire so how do I get back to watching my local news? I miss Harry & Amy!

Hi Steven, We haven't checked with our neighbours as we don't know them too well but I will ask them. When my husband has manually tuned the TV he has been selecting UHF channel 47 but it then won't let you save that it says 'scroll up or scroll down' and always goes a different channel I think 23.
We will follow exactly what you have suggested this evening and I will let you know how we get on.

Checked with a neighbour today and they do get Look North & Calendar from North Yorkshire region.
I have spend hours this evening trying to change to the UHF channel 47 and it just won't let me. I tried everything and then went to TV GUIDE and went to BBC1 Yorks and ITV Yorks and I've watched both local channels tonight for the first time in ages but I don't know if it will default back to the other ones tomorrow.
I have altered so many things on the TV now I'm not able to watch catch up ITV or channel 5 it comes up with 'an error has occurred, please try later' and I have but they don't work. They have moved position too, they were all in numerical order but they are all over the place now.
I'm going to get my son over to see if he can sort the problems out, he's rather more technical minded than me and my husband!
Thank you for your help.
