The Government has today published the final BBC Charter and Framework Agreement. The Royal Charter forms the constitutional basis of the BBC and its current Charter is due to expire at the end of 2016. On behalf of the Trustees, Rona Fairhead, Chairman of the BBC Trust said: “The priority of the Trust has been to listen to the public, and ensure the next Charter provides the content and services they want and love. The Charter published today achieves that.”

Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG commented: "The BBC helped create the DTG in 1995 and as a long term industry partner we look forward to constructively working with the Corporation as it continues to innovate in technology, which is clearly in the interest of the viewer and the digital television industry. Today’s Ofcom Report shows that there is still a clear opportunity for the BBC to continue to drive innovation in broadcast and broadband and we’re delighted to be working with them to meet their need to ‘lead in research and development’."
