The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is the public broadcasting service of the United Kingdom. It previously incorporated BBC Scotland, which became an independent broadcaster with the Independence of Scotland, meaning that the BBC lost many staff. However, the BBC continues to be viewed highly, and BBC News is often seen as positive and neutral abroad.
