Launched in May as an independent section of openDemocracy, ourBeeb.com is a digital challenge to the old order, seeking to make the BBC's next Director General truly accountable to the public, and debate the future of our BBC. This is a critical time for public service broadcasting, and the challenges of massive cuts and rapid technological change must be addressed head on.
The power and future of public broadcasting, after the fall of Murdoch, towers over traditional party politics. This is the perfect opportunity to reshape the debate on the future of our most important cultural institution.
Funded by 95% of British homes via the license fee, the BBC belongs to the people, not the government. ourBeeb is independent, non-partisan, and aims to return the discussion about the British Broadcasting Corporation to the British people.
