To this day, the BBC aims to follow the Reithian directive to "inform, educate and entertain". Set sales were disappointing as amateurs made their own receivers and listeners bought rival unlicensed sets.
This was to be followed by a simple 10 shillings licence fee with no royalty once the wireless manufactures protection expired. The BBC was also banned from presenting news bulletins before Mid found the future of broadcasting under further consideration, this time by the Crawford committee. Wireless manufacturers were anxious to exit the loss making consortium with Reith keen that the BBC be seen as a public service rather than a commercial enterprise.
The recommendations of the Crawford Committee were published in March the following year and were still under consideration by the GPO when the general strike broke out in May.

Boat races were well covered along with tennis and horse racing, but the BBC was reluctant to spend its severely limited air time on long football or cricket games, regardless of their popularity.
The success of broadcasting provoked animosities between the BBC and well established media such as theatres, concert halls and the recording industry. Bythe BBC complained that the agents of many comedians refused to sign contracts for broadcasting, because they feared it harmed the artist "by making his material stale" and that it "reduces the value of the artist as a visible music-hall performer".
On the other hand, the BBC was "keenly interested" in a cooperation with the recording companies who "in recent years Experimental television broadcasts were started inusing an electromechanical line system developed by John Logie Baird.
