Moonage Pictures production for BBC in co-production with ZDFneo

A highly successful commercial operation

As the principal commercial arm of the BBC Group, BBC Studios – led by CEO Tom Fussell - is responsible for generating revenue and profits which are returned to the BBC to support the licence fee. The business receives no public funds. 

In the last five years the BBC Studios has doubled revenues and profits with our latest Annual Report showing record-level revenues in 2022/23 of £2.1bn and profits of £240m. And the business has ambitious plans to double again by 2027/28 through organic and inorganic growth.

What BBC Studios does

BBC Studios comprises two world-renowned business areas: a content studio (which produces, amplifies and distributes IP) and a channels & streaming business. Three quarters of the work for BBC Studios Content Studio now comes from outside the BBC, from partners such as Apple, Amazon, Disney and Netflix, while our Productions business remains a key supplier to the BBC, as well as creating content for other broadcasters. 

In a nutshell: we’re able to take an idea from thought to screen and beyond, working with a wide range of expertise within our business as well as partnering with major media clients globally, including Amazon, AMC Networks, Apple TV+, Disney+, France Télévisions, Netflix, NHK, Nine Australia, PBS, NBC Universal, Warner Bros Discovery and ZDF.
