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.

s m coulson: You might need to clarify a few things....

Firstly, there is no such thing as a 'satellite relay' - your dish gets its signal from somewhere way above Africa. Do you actually have a dish? Or are you trying to use a satellite receiver with an aerial, which would account for the message ' no satellite dish'?

Or your dish (or its connections) might have a problem, even though the people you called said there wasn't.

Kirsty fedorenko: If there's a setting for region or network preference then using it should tune it correctly.

John berry: Your BT Freeview box has obviously picked up and stored BBC from Crystal Palace on Mux Ch23 rather than BBC from Hannington on Mux Ch45, BBC1 South being broadcast by the latter.

If your box has a manual tuning facility? the easiest way of getting over the problem without upsetting anything else already stored is simply by tuning in Mux Ch45, although this method will result in BBC1 having an 800 / 801 EPG number as EPG1 is already used.

If this is found to be somewhat inconvenient, you don't really have much option other than to manually tune in each of Hanningtons Mux channels one at a time, storing the result of each scan.

Hannington's channels as follows.

45 - 42 - 39 - 41 - 44 - 47 - 32 - 34

By the way, there is another procedure (which sometimes works) whereby you first of all blank out everything already stored in the box by carrying out an auto-scan "after" having removed the aerial connection, the next stage being to carry out a second auto-scan "minus the aerial", but reinserting same a short time after the scan has started, the idea being, that "if" you have timed it correctly you will have bypassed storing Crystal Palaces channels, "hopefully" only having stored those from Hannington.

RON WILLIAMS: BBC South is broadcast by four different stations, and as such the frequency of the Mux channel its received from is totally dependant on the station that covers the area you happen to reside, which of course you haven't mentioned!, however, undermentioned is the Mux channel number used by each of the four in question.

Midhurst - C55 / Salisbury - C57 / Hannington - C45 / Rowridge - C24.

RON WILLIAMS : In addition to previous reply. It should also be noted that these four stations mentioned are all in the category of being "main stations", but though in order to provide better coverage in areas not adequately served by these stations there are also approximately 34 relays dotted around the area.

You can easily find out which station covers your area by opening the undermentioned link for DUK's reception predictor followed by entering your post code into same, not forgetting to check the box for "detailed view", the channel number required "N" being under BBC A. That said is on the assumption that you actually reside in a BBC South coverage area?
