0843 208 2267

Contact the BBC on 0843 208 2267 to enquire or give feedback about any of the content it produces. BBC stands for British Broadcasting Corporation, and this is both the oldest and biggest national broadcasting organization around the globe. The BBC partially funds its work through an annual charge for a TV license. This means that anyone in the UK who watches and records live television has to pay a fee to do so legally.

BBC Enquiries

Contact the BBC on 0843 208 2267 as the first point of contact for all things relating to the BBC. They can answer any questions and direct you to resources about BBC programmes and services. They might even be able to transfer you to specific departments if this is possible. You can call for information about studio tours or tickets to be in the audience for a show. Or call to ask for permission to re-use the BBC’s content.

BBC Complaints

Call 0844 248 1587 to raise complaints about the BBC. Your complaint could be about any subject, and in reference to any programme on any BBC channel. Let them know where you saw or heard the source of the complaint and why it is offensive or upsetting. You can provide constructive criticism or just provide some straightforward criticism of their standards. Audience opinions can influence future content from the BBC.

BBC iPlayer

Even using BBC iPlayer online requires having a TV Licence and an account to log into to access all of the content and track your viewing. Most television and radio programmes broadcast on the BBC will end up on iPlayer. You can call 0844 248 1591 to request a programme you missed if it isn’t available on catch-up. Or call to check for service faults if videos aren’t playing or you are unable to access your iPlayer account.

Radio One

The BBC operates a variety of radio channels and radio programmes for different audiences of listeners. The most popular and mainstream channel is Radio One, which broadcasts the Top 40 music charts each week. Call 0844 248 1592 if you want to discuss a particular radio channel, show, or presenter. This isn’t the number to call to enter competitions or submit song requests. However, you can call with feedback.

BBC News

BBC News is one of the most well-known and respected news sources. So if you spot an inaccuracy in a news report, you should call 0844 453 0231 and tell them to correct it. This could be in a programme or an article. Request more coverage of a certain topic if you think the BBC has not been reporting adequately on something important. You could even submit your own stories, or tweet them over to @BBC_HaveYourSay.

BBC Sport

If you have a query or something to criticize about BBC Sport, then call 0844 248 1604. You can suggest content for the BBC to include in their sports coverage. Or suggest ways to improve the BBC’s operations should you be dissatisfied with their coverage style or methods. The BBC also operates My Sport, which allows users to add their favourite sports topics and rank the news accordingly. Call to discuss My Sport.

CBBC

Most children in the UK are likely to watch the CBBC channel if they watch television. They may even play CBBC games online. Call 0844 248 1605 if you are a parent and you have an issue with the CBBC website or a CBBC programme. Call to submit your child’s ideas for CBBC shows if you think that the BBC should use them. Or call to learn how your child’s artwork can feature in a programme, or how to attend a taping.

Other Ways to Contact the BBC

There are primary Facebook and Twitter pages for the BBC, but they also have dedicated pages for areas and programmes of the BBC. You should find the one you are specifically interested in to contact – this list might help. Or you can work your way through this online form by selecting the relevant topics. To write a letter about a particular show, you can look through their programme directory for an address. Enquiries and complaints letters can otherwise go to PO Box 1922, Darlington, DL3 0UR – or the head office address.
