The BBC Story

In October 1922, a group of the top wireless device manufacturers banded together and established BBC. One of the most notable minds, Marconi, was part of this group. The following month, BBC began broadcasting daily in 2LO, Marconi's London studio. Towards the end of 1922, John Reith, a Scottish engineer, was appointed the company's general manager. The company started small, disseminating information through radio technology for a few hours daily. 

The unique thing about Reith's appointment is that he didn't know jack about broadcasting. He was at a total loss on how to proceed with managing a media outfit. Plus, there was no rule or standard to serve as a guide. Reith took the initiative by becoming proactive. He experimented with innovations, and thanks to assistance from his assistant, BBC experienced gradual expansion. 

In 1927, the company was officially established by a Royal Charter, with John Reith becoming the pioneer director-general of the company. The Royal Charter outlined the objectives, obligations, and powers of the BBC. Shortly after, BBC experimented with TV broadcasting, eventually becoming a staple with the firm. Today, BBC is one of the largest media outfits with news correspondents worldwide.
