    Abstract

    This thesis attempts to look in depth at the BBC’s actions in the broadcasting industry both past and present, particularly focusing on changes made because of competition. Starting by looking at the early years of the BBC the thesis continues through history detailing key points in the BBC’s past and noting changes to its services and differing opinions of the times. The question of the BBC’s use of the license fee is highly contended and multiple opinions and points of view are discussed. Analysis of different possibilities of BBC funding is carried out with evidence present to suggest possible outcomes. The thesis culminates into a conclusion that discusses what the future may bring and the relevance of the license fee in 21st Century Britain.
