Murphy's Law

The BBC Style Guide

The British Broadcasting Corporation is in my humble opinion the uncontested global king of quality broadcasting.

So when I found out they have published their style guide online I jumped to it.

Now allowing for local differences, namely the use of International English (and a section entitled “Americanisms”) it includes a wealth of tips and advice.

Worth the download.

Thanks to the ever wonderful I-PR mailing list for the link.

“One of the things that most exercises our listeners and viewers is our use of words and constructions which we are accused of slavishly copying from the United States.”
