he List and more: BBC funding. The BBC would never speak against their funders, would they?

We are grateful to the wide range of funders, including national governments, the UN and other international organisations, foundations, corporate partners and private individuals that supported our 100 different projects in 2017/18.
Significant donors included the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the European Commission, several UN agencies, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the  British Council.
The 15 members of our Corporate Leaders Group contributed cash and in-kind support, and our annual fundraising event The Correspondents Dinner and gifts from individual donors continued to raise valuable unrestricted income for the organisation.
The BBC provided gift in kind office facilities and a grant to reflect the value of programming that BBC Media Action provides to BBC World Service.
The British Council is of course a sponsor/partner of Common Purpose.
In a recent interview on the BBC, a mother blamed the British Council leadership expectations for the suicide of her son in his early 20s.

In the financial year 2013/14 the BBC took £878,000, while in 2014/15 it received £778,000 from the EU.  The broadcaster has received £476,000 (2015/16) but may be larger.
The BBC has admitted taking more than £2 million in European Union funding over the past three years, but said it had taken the cash under the European Union framework programme, to fund its research and development arm, which is working on projects such as 3D broadcasting, and ultra-high definition filming.
