The BBC is in the NUJ's sights over its sharp dealings with freelance members' rights. Working with an unprecedented range of other creators' organisations, the NUJ has launched the Creators' Rights Alliance, focusing on broadcasting corporations.
The BBC is a 'public corporation': neither a private corporation nor a government department. The high ideal is that it is held in trust for the public of the UK by the BBC Trust (the successor to the Board of Governors following the renewal of the BBC Charter by the government in 2006). For more see its 'corporate information' pages linked below.
