IBT congratulates the BBC for its children’s output, as the dominant UK supplier of a varied schedule which includes factual, drama, animation and entertainment for children under 12 years old.


The Global Purpose

While IBT recognises that the six public purposes should not be seen as entirely separate aims but as parts of a whole, whose boundaries necessarily overlap, in this submission, we primarily focus on the delivery of the purpose remit, Bringing the UK to the world and the World to the UK (the global purpose) since this is IBT’s area of expertise. We focus on television provision CBBC and CBeebies because, again, this is where our expertise lies and do not address radio or online content.
