The BBC's programmes and services in the UK and around the world

The BBC has started airing a special new trailer (above), showing how the nation is coming together to share a summer of events on BBC One.
The trail features over 104 people from across the nation and includes BBC talent such as Huw Edwards, Gary Lineker, Jake Humphrey, Reggie Yates, Colin Jackson and Fearne Cotton.
The 90 second trail, which first aired before the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, uses a vast array of quick cuts which merge 168 separate shots from 74 different locations together to create a smooth, filmic sequence. The work also features the original Beatles' recording of 'All Together Now'.
The trailer highlights the little rituals some of us have when preparing to watch an event with the BBC: making the tea, getting the biscuits, making sure the whole family is comfortable on the sofa, and of course finding the TV remote. It shows the nation, that wherever we are and whoever we watch with, the BBC's coverage of British events allows us to all come together as one.
