While supporting the UK armed forces around the world with media, entertainment and communication services through our contract with the Ministry of Defence, we also provide the armed services and clients in the UK and abroad with specialist skills and expertise built over our 75-year history.
We are perfectly placed to meet the most challenging broadcasting, entertainment, communication and production needs.
And our proven experience at creating content for all media platforms means we are ideally placed to share our experience and skills with others.
Clients in the commercial, government and not-for-profit sectors call on our unique set of services, which go beyond broadcasting, in these three areas:
Digital and creative services: BFBS Creative
Our creative agency produces exceptional, award-winning content for and with our clients.
Content that informs, entertains, engages and connects audiences of all ages across the globe.
Training and development: BFBS Academy
BFBS Academy offers a broad range of vocational training, from a full-time HNC Creative Media Production course for service leavers, to online social media training for military spouses.
We also provide digital communications, media production and media skills training for the Ministry of Defence, the government, UK charities and defence companies.
Pioneering technical solutions and platforms: BFBS Media Innovation
Our dedication to advancing our technology attracts governmental, corporate and humanitarian clients who need to connect with people and communities in the hardest-to-reach places.
In addition to our media, entertainment and communications services, we remain committed to offering our forces other award-winning services, including live military events, which we produce and deliver worldwide.
Originating from the Second World War to help raise the morale of the UK armed forces in the UK and overseas, our BFBS Cinemas also continue to entertain the UK armed forces, their families and friends.
And the Movie Machine, a unique mobile cinema that BFBS runs in partnership with Sky Cinema, is available to the armed forces and their families for special movie screenings and events.
Beyond that our Cinelink service takes the cinema experience to forces, even in remote locations.
Also, we are home to MODAL, the Ministry of Defence Archive Library, a vast digital archive of contemporary military content, which our clients can access.
