BBC English Regions

BBC English Regions is the division of the BBC responsible for local television, radio, web and teletext services in England. It is one of the BBC’s four ‘Nations’ – the others being BBC Scotland, BBC Wales and BBC Northern Ireland.

The division is made up of 12 separate regions. Many of the names of these regions are similar to those of the official government Regions of England, but the areas covered are often significantly different as they are determined by terrestrial transmission areas, not administrative boundaries.

The headquarters of BBC English Regions is at The Mailbox in Birmingham, with regional television centres in Manchester, Leeds, Hull, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham, Norwich, Bristol, London, Tunbridge Wells, Southampton and Plymouth, and local radio stations based at 43 locations across England.
