Time to amend that charter! Silly restriction!

Mr Awe
A central restriction: without it the BBC is just another commercial broadcaster, and the justification for the licence fee rather than advertising goes.

Much as I like Doctor Who, I don't personally feel it's more important than all the other good aspects of the BBC that would go.
I don't know about the UK, but in the US, non-profits can invest their profits back into the business in the manner they see fit. You just can't have individuals getting increased rewards based on increasing profits (e.g. profits can benefit the company/charity but they can't benefit the people who run it.)

I could see a system like that for the BBC. Keep it essentially a non-profit but let them use the money they earn to more effectively run themselves.
