Beyond the broadcast

As the UK's national public service broadcaster, we have six Public Purposes which were set our for us by the Government.  Everything we do at the BBC - every TV or radio show and every website or event - is designed to help us achieve one or more of these purposes.

This includes all of the work that we do beyond broadcasting, and every one of our face-to-face activities is helping us fulfil at least one of these purposes.

This face-to-face activity, which we call outreach, is designed to help us meet our audiences across the country, especially those usually considered difficult to reach through traditional broadcasting.

Click on the examples below to find out exactly how we use outreach activities to meet our Public Purposes.
