Appendix 5: Guidelines for BBC Commercial Services on Editorial Integrity and Independence from External Interests

Television Programmes made by BBC Worldwide Production Offices for Third Party Channels


BBC Worldwide Production Offices make some programmes for broadcast on non-BBC channels operated by third parties. It is essential that these productions are in accordance with the BBC's core values and standards. The key principles of these Guidelines should be followed, but in some cases the specific detail may not be appropriate. Careful decisions need to be made and BBC Worldwide Commercial Policy and BBC Editorial Policy can provide operational guidance in this area.
