Can I use BBC programmes?

Page updated: 23 September 2016

Can I play a whole TV or radio programme to an audience?

That depends on where you are and what you want to use it for.

If you’re in the UK and it’s for educational purposes

You may be able to use whole programmes or clips for educational purposes if your school, college or university has an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) licence. Visit the ERA website for more info.

You can also buy some TV programmes for educational use from BBC Active.

Visit the BBC Active Video for Learning website for more info.

For anything else, get in touch here to tell us what you want to do, including:

  • Who you are
  • Details of your organisation (if relevant), including how you're funded.
