This chapter examines the transition of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) from a company to a corporation. It suggests that the announcement of the new Governors of the BBC as a corporation in October 1926 was a sign that the old regime was drawing to a close. However, with the demise of the ‘company’ some of the old issue of 1922 re-emerged in the relations between the constituent companies which made up the BBC. It describes the changes in the management and operation of BBC after it became a corporation and highlights the knighthood of J.W.C. Reith.

Keywords:   corporation, Governors, constituent companies, management, operation, Reith, knighthood
