The main roles of the Trust are in setting the overall strategic direction of the BBC, including its priorities, and in exercising a general oversight of the work of the Executive Board. The Trust will perform these roles in the public interest, particularly the interest of licence fee payers.

The Executive Board runs the BBC. It is responsible for delivering the BBC’s services in accordance with the strategy agreed with the BBC Trust, and for all aspects of operational management. The Board is made up of executive directors from within the BBC and a number of non-executive directors, who bring external expertise and insight to the operation of the Board.

    risk assessment

    The risks with our video can be dangerous due to us filming in and around a swimming pool:

    1. Someone may drown in the pool if you are unable to swim.
    2. Someone may slip over and hit your head or cause injury to your body.
    3. Someone might drop the camera or other equipment and it could break or land in the pool.

    To prevent these injuries from happening, firstly make sure that everyone can swim. do not run on the edge of the pool. And lastly, keep the electronic equipment away from the pool.

    track choice and analysis

    Kendrick Lamar 
    Swimming Pools (Drank) 

    The track we have chosen is swimming pools by kendrick lamar. 
    we have chosen this track because for a start its called swimming pools so we have an original idea of where to film our video. The lyrics are easy to understand and mimic and therefore will make our video more accurate and a better representation of the song. We all like this track and I believe that this will help us when filming because we will be more enthusiastic and have a greater understanding of what happens in the song. This song was the clear choice for us as it is the genre of music we listen to, which means we can get really enthusiastic about the song and the filming. 

    The song is about people's relationship with drink and alcohol, so the video is quiet a dark video due to the fact that the song is about something negative. Our idea and concept was to make the video more fun and less depressing, so instead of focusing on the drinking on alcohol, we focused on the whole swimming pool idea. 

    The camera and visuals don't really match with the audio but thats why it works so well. The tempo of the song starts off fairly quick with slow the visual shots being very slow and statics with lots of cuts to different locations. The sets for this video are normally dark to represent that alcohol is a bad thing, but Kendrick is dressed in all white to standout.


    • The BBC was formed in 1922 by a group of wireless manufacturers. Broadcasting began on the 14th November and could be heard all over the UK. The BBC broadcast  mixture of plays, talks, music and variety acts. 
    • There was a general strike in 1926, in the absence of newspapers, the people turned to the BBC for news. the significance of this is that more people would have watched the BBC News therefore increasing the BBCs popularity. 
    • 1927, renamed british broadcasting corporation.
    • BBC moves into broadcasting house, in portland place london, 1932. Launches the empire service (later called the world service).
    • Wimbledon was broadcasted in 1937. This was the first time Tennis was broadcasted on television. 
    • In 1938, the FA cup final and Boat race was televised.
    • In 1943 new technology (A lighter, more portable field recorder) allowed BBC war correspondents to report from the front line. This was very beneficial for the people at home during the war because they got to experience what the front line of war was like. 
    • The BBC gained a reputation for honesty during the war. By 1945 it was broadcasting in 40 languages. This was significant because more people from different nationalities could watch the BBC.
    • 1945 also saw the launch of the light program. It played light entertainment and music, often played by the BBC orchestra or the Billy Cotton Band.
    • The third program launched in 1946 played classical music. This would have increased the BBC's target audience as the older viewers would have listened to classical music. 
    • In 1946 the first T.V. license was introduced of £2 a year. The equivalent to just under £60 in todays money. This paid for the single monochrome channel then being broadcast. 
    • In 1948 the olympics were televised. This would have made the BBC very popular as this was the only way the general public would have been able to view the olympics. 
    • In 1968 the license fee was raised to £5 plus another £5 if you had color T.V. 
    • The current license fee is £135.50 or £11.29 a month. The licence fee is influential as it pays for the BBC without having to have adverts in the shows they broadcast. 
    • Until 2007, the BBC was run by its board of governors, under a royal charter which is renewed every 10 years. It is now run by the BBC trust.

    3.BBFC presentation

    Presentation1 from olliefriend

    BBFC Trip:
    On our trip to the BBFC we had a two hour seminar on how films are rated by the BBFC and the requirements films have to for-fill to be a certain age range. I learnt that there have been many age ratings over the years for example the 'H' rating meant horrific so obviously it means it was a scary film.   I also learnt that if a film wants to have an age rating of say 12 but the BBFC rate it as a 15, the producer will have to make cuts to the film in order for the film to meet the requirements of the 12 rating.
