Abroad[edit]

In addition to the domestic bases, the BBC has numerous bases overseas to monitor the global news organisations and to gather news stories. The BBC itself does not publish the exact location of each of their news bureau in case of attack or harassment of staff because of their employment by the broadcaster, which aims to be politically neutral.
