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 en.wikipedia.org link icon 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 highlights

Weekdays 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 avoid

The morning schedule of Cash In The Attic, 11:30am and Bargain Hunt, 12:15pm are formalistic.



This channel carries a subtitles service for the deaf, hard of hearing and quiet environments.

Channels 1 & 2 (BBC1 & BBC") are pixalating? 4 of my neighbors are having the same trouble. We live in Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 1GR.
Is there any reason for this?

Stuart Stanton: Hi, Stuart. There are no reported problems at the Waltham on The Wolds tv transmitter today and so you and your neighbours shouldn't be experiencing any issues. Richard, Norwich. PS study this website in more detail next time, thus making a 'self-diagnosis possible. Brian has put lots and lots of information on this website to help you to solve your own issues before asking for help.
