The Culture, Media and Sport Committee is considering the future of the BBCWhat BBC services, programmes and content do you value and what would you miss if it was no longer there? What is your view on the BBC’s plans to make some of its content and programmes targeted at younger people available only online? How does BBC content aimed at younger people compare with that available elsewhere? How should the BBC be paid for? These are some of the questions the Culture, Media and Sport Committee at the House of Commons is considering as part of its work looking at the BBC. Approximately every 10 years the Government conducts a review of the BBC; this is known as Charter review and will begin next year. The Committee is running its own inquiry in order to inform the Government’s thinking. That’s why the Committee is now keen to hear your views. The Committee is considering many aspects of the BBC, from the range of services it provides, to the way it is funded. The BBC is currently funded through a licence fee. John Whittingdale MP, who chairs the Committee, explains why he is keen to hear your views.
What's next?At the end of the inquiry, the Committee will publish a report setting out its findings and recommendations based on the evidence it has heard: it expects to do so in the autumn. Your responses to this consultation will feed into the Committee’s work and help shape its conclusions on the BBC.
