BBC stands for British Broadcasting Corporation and it is an international news agency owned by Britain. BBC is popular around the globe because of its worldwide activity. It has branches in different countries of the world and these branches serve the people of that country as well the rest of the world with news. On the other hand, Vietnam is a renowned country as it succeeded to get unified in spite of its war against the United States of America. The communist north and the south were unified in the year 1975. America came out of its Domino Theory to protect Vietnam from communism and left this country after a huge amount of loss of US citizens in the war. More interestingly, Vietnam is still a communist country and the United States of Americas is its main trading partner now. However, Britain decided to remain totally neutral and acted like a silent spectator during these long years of war between these two parties. Probably, Bbc Vietnamese Việt Nam carries the reflection of that decision in several ways.
However, Bbc Vietnamese Việt Nam is consisted of fourteen staff and they are equipped with sophisticated radio and online facilities. They work like a combined team to run the branch of BBC in Vietnam. The producers sometimes travel to Bangkok to serve the office there. No matter what, they have to get back to Vietnam and work here. This Bbc Vietnamese Việt Nam has been continuing there since the year 2004. The team has undertaken quite significant measures in order to enhance the radio transmissions and online output so that two radio transmissions can be possible and bbcvietnamies.com website can be developed.

In 2002, Vietnam government blocked BBC website as a result of China's effort of breaking down foreign news resources. The citizens of Vietnam were not permitted to access to the website of Bbc Vietnamese Việt Nam and get international and local news in a variety of languages. Vietnam government also introduced rules so that general people could be restricted from the news of foreign services. Vietnam government actually followed China as a huge amount of antipathy against these foreign services was developing worldwide due to some specific incidents on the web. However, two weeks after the beginning of the block, it was lifted up and the rights to access to the website were restored. Vietnam is now a little bit relaxed in its dealing with BBC.
