London is a major international communications centre with a virtually unrivalled number of media outlets. Almost all of the major media organizations in the UK are based in London. Much of the British media is concentrated in London and is sometimes accused of having a “London bias”. All the major television networks are head-quartered in London including the BBC, which remains one of the world’s most influential media organisations, and the largest Broadcaster in the world.
There is a huge choice of radio stations available in London. Local city-wide stations include music-based stations such as Absolute Radio, Capital 95.8, Kiss 100, Magic 105.4, Heart 106.2 and Xfm. Popular news/talk stations include BBC London, LBC 97.3 and LBC News 1152.
London has two city-wide daily newspaper titles – the Evening Standard and Metro, both of which are available on the streets and at London tube and railway stations.
London is also at the centre of British film and television production industries, with major studio facilities on the western fringes of the conurbation and a large post-production industry centred in Soho
