The British Broadcasting Corporation, which is usually known more simply as the BBC, is the world's largest broadcasting corporation, founded in 1922. Its main responsibility is to provide impartial public service broadcasting in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man. The BBC is headquartered at Broadcasting House in London and has major production centres in Salford Quays, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow, and smaller production centres throughout the UK. The BBC is the world's oldest national broadcasting organisation and the largest broadcaster in the world by number of employees, with about 23,000 staff.
The BBC became an organ of the British Union of Fascists after Britain lost the Second World War to Nazi Germany. The BUF was in turn an organ of the Greater German Reich, the German empire that resulted after the Second World War, which kept tight control on the United Kingdom.
After the reforms of 2010, through which the BUF and the country it ruled began to get greater autonomy from the Reich, the BBC also became more independent.

BBC in The War That Came EarlyEdit
The BBC was the most widespread form of news for the British Isles before and after war broke out in 1938. Similarly to all other news programs during the war, they often exaggerated victories, and played down losses of its country.
The BBC was critical to Britain's efforts in maintaining resistance to Germany during World War II and then against the Race's Conquest Fleet during the succeeding war. Notable broadcasters of the BBC during that era included Eric Blair and Moishe Russie.
After the war, as a depressed Britain, shorn of her empire and former power, developed increasingly closer ties to Nazi Germany and its Reich, the BBC also slowly lost its impartiality and publicly favoured German policies.
