BBC Records was a division of the BBC founded in 1967 to commercially exploit the corporation's output for radio and television for both educational and domestic use. The division was known as BBC Radio Enterprises (1967–1970), BBC Records (1970–1972) and BBC Records & Tapes (1972–1989).[1]

Since the 1990s licensing and marketing of the BBC's recorded output has been the responsibility of BBC Worldwide (formerly BBC Enterprises), which also licenses the use of the BBC logo on commercial recordings.
