ABOUT

BBC One is the flagship television channel of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Channel Islands. It was launched on 2 November 1936 as the BBC Television Service, and was the world's first regular television service with a high level of image resolution.

It was renamed BBC TV in 1960, using this name until the launch of sister channel BBC2 in 1964, whereupon the BBC TV channel became known as BBC1, with the current spelling adopted in 1997.

The channel is funded by the television licence fee together with the BBC's other domestic television stations, and therefore shows uninterrupted programming without commercial advertising.

It is the most watched television channel in the United Kingdom, ahead of its traditional rival for ratings leadership, ITV.

The channel's lineup includes such shows as EastEnders, Sherlock, Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice, Doctor Who, Miranda, Mrs Brown's Boys and Call the Midwife.
