At least 25% of the BBC's output (excluding news) must be made by outside independent production companies, with another 25% split between indie and in house production. Many well known "BBC" programmes are actually made by indies such as ''Series/{{Spooks}}'', ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', ''Series/LifeOnMars'', ''Series/{{QI}}'', ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'', and ''Friday Night With Jonathan Ross''. This requirement was introduced to help the UK indie industry. These are genuine independent production companies who retain ownership of the rights for repeats, syndication, DVD and overseas sales etc, unlike the US (and Creator/{{Channel 4}}) where production company names in the show's credits are effectively vanity names and do not alter the fact that the show is made by the studio who own all the rights.

* '''BBC Radio 1''': The youth station, playing primarily chart music (many are quick to point out that "chart music" doesn't simply mean generic pop music as in the United States, but also encompasses various other genres including hip-hop, indie rock and blues) during the day, and more obscure genres get airplay in the evening and into the night.
* '''BBC Radio 2''': Another music station, but aims for an older demographic.
* '''BBC Radio 3''': Plays classical, jazz, and "world" music as well as arts programming and the occasional drama.
* '''BBC Radio 4''' The spoken word station, which broadcasts a mix of news, documentaries, drama, comedy and current affairs, similar to the American Creator/{{NPR}}.

* '''BBC Knowledge''': The BBC's take on The Discovery Channel and the National Georgraphic Channel. Commonly known as the home of Series/TopGear, they also air several Canadian and British reality TV shows like the Canadian version of UndercoverBoss, as well as plenty of their own documentaries. Available in HD in certain markets. Also the name of the UK digital channel that preceded BBC Four from 1998-2002. Apparently has been replaced by ''BBC Earth'' in most markets, perhaps due to Series/TopGear was stopping production from Jeremy Clarkson getting fired, which in turn caused fellow presenters James May & Richard Hammond, as well as producer Andy Wilman to quit.
