The Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (often shortened to BBC) was a Philippine television network that began operations in November 4, 1973 and ceased transmission on March 20, 1986.
Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (first era)
On September 23, 1972, when ABS-CBN was forcibly shut down as a result of martial law, Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation was launched on November 4, 1973. Its first logo was a red-cyan-green foreground with its circular arcs below and initials 'bbc' in compressed ITC Avant Garde Bold font above and number '2' logo in Bauhaus Regular font below inside its shape logo.
Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (second era)
In 1984, City 2 was reverted back to BBC-2 with a reuse of their 1973 logo in its last years of broadcast. BBC-2 ended operations on March 20, 1986 at the height of the People Power Revolution along with RPN and IBC (temporarily), after reformist soldiers disabled the transmitter that was broadcasting Marcos' inauguration from Malacañang Palace. Upon Corazón C. Aquino's subsequent accession to the presidency, BBC, RPN and IBC (collectively known as "Broadcast City") were sequestered and placed under the management of a Board of Administrators tasked to operate and manage its business and affairs subject to the control and supervision of Presidential Commission on Good Government. DWWX-TV was returned to ABS-CBN on September 14, 1986, as were the Cebu and Bacolod affiliate stations.
