  BBC Knowledge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
BBC Knowledge was an early BBC digital television channel, available by cable, satellite, or terrestrial digital broadcasting, providing a strong programme of documentary, cultural and educational television.
Given that the BBC television service was only suspended during the war, and renamed BBC 1 in 1964, this meant that BBC Knowledge was the first ever BBC television channel to be closed down permanently.
BBC Knowledge output was educational, and it initally had a 'bright and breezy' schedule [1] however due to very low viewing figures this was altered to be a more serious documentary channel within a year.

In March 2003 the BBC announced that from the end of May 2003 (subsequently deferred to July 14) it intended to transmit all eight of its domestic television channels (including the 15 regional variations of BBC ONE) unencrypted from the Astra 2D satellite.
The BBC is regularly accused by the government of the day of bias in favour of the opposition and, by the opposition, of bias in favour of the government.
BBC ONE is the home to the BBC's main news bulletins, currently being shown at 1pm, 6pm and 10pm GMT (or British Summer Time, depending on the time of the year).

 BBC: Living in a Bubble   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
In January, criticisms made of the BBC in a report by an official commission set up by the U.K. government ("the Hutton enquiry") in regard to its Iraq-war coverage, were so scathing that both the chairman of the board of governors of the BBC and its director-general had little choice but to resign.
Instead the BBC reminded us that Reagan was "a B movie actor," and stated that as president his "foreign policy was criticised for being in disarray." Accompanying photos were not of Reagan meeting Gorbachev, but of Oliver North, and of the invasion of Grenada ("a clumsy sham," according to the BBC text).
BBC Online for example, last Saturday, gave the impression that al-Sudais was nothing but a benign, kindly cleric promoting (to quote the BBC) "community cohesion" between Muslims and their neighbors.

 Arutz Sheva - Israel National News
One particularly cosmetic exercise was a 30-minute BBC profile of Arafat that described him as a "hero," and "an icon," and spoke of him as having "performer's flare," and "charisma and style" and "personal courage" and being "the stuff of legends." Adjectives applied to him included "clever," "respectable," and "triumphant".
The BBC's double standards are clear to almost everyone except, it seems, to the BBC itself and its sympathizers in the press.
Meanwhile, to my knowledge, the BBC has made no documentaries about human rights abuses in the Arab world; or about Palestinian schoolbooks; or about the Palestinian Authority's incitement of the Palestinian population; or about the Palestinian Authority's funding of terrorism allegedly with the use of European Union aid funds.

After a six-month investigation, the BBC said it had evidence that Saddam took billions from the oil-for-food program, and that "these abuses were widely known about at the time".
The BBC said there was evidence that Saddam demanded a kickback from companies that wanted to do business with Iraq under the oil-for-food program.
The BBC sent a reporter to Iraq and Jordan to track down people involved in the oil-for-food program, which has been described as the largest financial swindle in history.

The corporate BBC logo is permanently on screen during trailers for programmes; it pops up during the opening titles of programmes and appears at the end of them too.
