Hello, welcome to WikiProject BBC!

We cover all articles that are related to the BBC and over time we aim to make all BBC related articles among the best that Wikipedia has to offer. We always welcome new members to assist us with this task, and so if you would like to help us with this, please feel free to add your name to our list of members.


On 3 January 2007, the BBC Portal was opened for the first time by this project. It contains a selected article, picture and biography as well as news relating to the BBC and a selection of interesting facts. Please feel free to join in and maintain the portal, as it needs updating regularly to keep things fresh. To link the Portal on BBC related articles add {{Portal|BBC}}. For more information please see our Portal Maintenance page.


WikiProject BBC doesn't currently have its own guidelines. For content and style, the appropriate good and featured articles may be of help. In addition to the Manual of Style, editors may find the following resources useful:


Almost all BBC articles have been assessed, however there is still work to be completed: articles that have already been reviewed need to be monitored, so that ratings can be changed when necessary. By rating articles you can help us to identify which are only stub or start class and thus need improving, and also which are most important to the project. You can help to rate WikiProject BBC articles at the assessment page.

Current tasks[edit]

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Stub articles[edit]

A list of all BBC related articles that have been assessed as stubs can be found here. Please help the project by expanding and improving these articles. Also, please re-assess any articles that you no longer consider to be stub class.


Add images of idents and programmes whenever possible, respecting the requirements of Wikipedia's guideline on "Fair Use" of copyright images. For biographical articles it is preferred that freely available images are used if the subject is alive. Fair use images are used normally where the subject is deceased and no free images are available. Please bear in mind the 'Fair Use' guidelines when uploading images.

Anyone wishing to request an article relating to the BBC should add a URL link which provides information relevant to the request or provide a brief explanation of what the requested article is about on the BBC WikiProject Requests.
