BBC Charter review: IET comments to the Department of Culture, Media and Sport


Whilst the IET recognises that the future of the BBC is a predominately political issue, the focus of the IET response was around question 6.

The IET believes that the contribution made to engineering and R&D in the broadcast industry by the BBC is not fully appreciated and that the BBC is a key contributor to both the Global and UK broadcast industry.

The consultation response highlights the importance of the BBC in terms of its engineering expertise, its reputation and the contribution it has made to society making the UK a recognised global leader and centre for excellence in the broadcast industry.
