As the BBC is a public corporation, financed by the licence fee, its income must be used for broadcasting or closely associated purposes. We therefore need to place sensible limits on the type and quantity of information we can provide as answers to the enquiries we receive.

If we were to oblige any one of the huge number of requests similar to yours that we receive each week, it would set a precedent which we wouldn't be able to maintain. Unfortunately, for this reason, we must turn down such requests.
