Tomorrow’s BBC: Your Say – Seminar Six
Tuesday, 24 November 2015 from 09:00 to 12:00
Join the BBC Chairman and others at the Tomorrow’s BBC: Your Say – Seminar Six to discuss the future of the BBC
The BBC is governed by a Royal Charter and the current Charter is due to expire at the end of 2016. The Government is currently considering how the next Charter can ensure that the BBC and its services evolve over the next decade and continue to meet the needs of its audiences.
- What should be the BBC’s mission in the next charter period?
- What should the scale and scope of the BBC be?
- Should it be providing something for everyone – or only content and services which aren’t available from other broadcasters?
- Are the programmes and services provided by the BBC high quality and distinctive?
- How can the BBC best serve audiences around the UK?
These are just some of the issues which the Trust will be exploring at their event in Sunderland – and the BBC Trust, the governing body of the BBC, wants to hear from you.
Come along to hear the what the panellists have to say, and then take part in the discussion and give your own views about the future of the BBC in order to inform the Charter review debate.
Event host: Charlie Charlton (BBC Newcastle)

- Richard Ayre – BBC Trust member
