This chapter describes the key changes in the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in 1926. After the governors of the new corporation were announced, artists and speakers were advised to use the abbreviation BBC over the air to avoid mistakenly use the term company instead of corporation. J.W.C. Reith was appointed Director-General. This chapter highlights the accomplishments of BBC from 1922 to 1926 and its contribution to the development of radio broadcasting in Great Britain.

Keywords:   corporation, Reith, radio broadcasting, Great Britain
