For over 90 years, the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has been a primary source of media throughout the world. Headquartered in London, the BBC World Service began in 1932 and is one of the chief foreign news sources and includes 28 major languages. Founded in 1920, the BBC became a public service in 1926. Although the BBC is known for radio and television broadcasts, they also have their own orchestra and libraries. While the BBC works to be non-partial and unbiased, this was taken under criticism in regard to the Iraq War. As a large news organization, the BBC has set several media standards in the past including the antiquated comedy writer’s guidebook called The Green Book.
