BBC Worldwide to bring Golden Jubilee to millions

BBC Worldwide, the main commercial arm of the BBC, will be supporting the public service coverage of the Golden Jubilee celebrations through a range of telephony, publishing and programme export business activities.
BBC Audiocall, BBC Worldwide’s telephony division, will help 24,000 members of the British public join The Queen for two unique concerts this June to celebrate her Golden Jubilee at Buckingham Palace.
'Prom at the Palace' (June 1) and 'Party at the Palace' (June 3) will bring together celebrated musical performers from Britain and the rest of the world to celebrate the Jubilee and to raise money for The Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Trust.
By calling 0900 1952 2002, a number which reflects the dates of The Queen’s reign, people can put forward their names in a ballot for selection to attend the concerts in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
BBC Audiocall will manage more than 3,000 phone lines in English, Hindi, Urdu, Gujerati, Punjabi, Bengali, Mipuri, Welsh and Gaelic. There will also be a Typetalk line for hearing-impaired members of the public.
Rupert Gavin, Chief Executive, BBC Worldwide, commenting on the company’s
commercial and international activities, said: “The Golden Jubilee concerts and programming are major landmark events and we are looking forward to working with our publishing and broadcasting partners around the world to ensure they reach the widest possible global audience.”
BBC Worldwide will donate proceeds from its commercial activity surrounding the Jubilee concerts to The Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Trust.
