BBC National Weather


~ BBC National Weather ~

The BBC began their weather broadcasts in association with the Met Office in 1922, starting with radio before moving in to television broadcasts after the end of the second world war. Over the years, technologies have moved on in particular with the introduction of computers for both data collection and graphical representation. Throughout all that time, the BBC's relationship with the Met Office remained in place, although this is due to end in 2017 with a change of the contract to MeteoGroup for weather provision.
