The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) came into existence on January 1, 1927, and John Reith (who had been MD for the British Broadcasting Company) – newly knighted – was appointed its first Director General. To represent its purpose and (stated) values, the new corporation adopted the coat of arms, including the motto “Nation shall speak peace unto Nation”.
