5.BBC One Purposes

Royal Charter: The royal charter is the basis for the BBC. It sets out the public purposes of the BBC, guarantees its independence, and outlines the duties of the trust and the executive board. The agreement with the secretary of state provides detail on many topics outlined in the charter and also covers the BBCs funding. 

BBC Trust: The BBC exists to serve the public to educate and entertain. The BBC trust is the governing body of the BBC. 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.
