In 2014/15, the BBC Trust conducted a review of the performance of the BBC's UK network music and speech radio services. The review aimed to assess how well the services were fulfilling the commitments defined in their respective service licences, whether changes to the licences were needed and whether the stations offered good value for money.The Audience Council Northern Ireland has closely engaged with different sections of the audience in Northern Ireland to understand the range of views about BBC’s network (ie broadcasting UK-wide) music radio services, specifically Radio 1 and 1xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3 and Radio 6 Music. The Audience Council advice to the Trust detailed in this paper, is informed by its engagement with audiences in 2014 and its wider understanding of local audiences' needs and expectations of BBC network radio services. This advice, along with a wide range of other audience evidence, will inform the Trust’s major review of BBC network music radio this year.
